Morrison Water Services has successfully demonstrated its safer, smarter and greener fleet credentials to achieve a silver accreditation in the demanding Fleet Operators Recognition Scheme (FORS).
The company which is part of M Group Services’ Water Division achieved this recognition of the higher safety, environmental and fleet compliance standards for the Thames Water Smart Metering contract - a fleet of around 200 vehicles and operatives.
The team is responsible for delivering an ambitious programme of street-by-street meter installations over the last seven years as part of Thames Water’s drive to transform its metering infrastructure by fitting compulsory water meters for its customers.
Morrison Water Services has completed over 980,000 installations since 2016. Smart water meters allow customers to automatically track the amount of water they use. Importantly they also allow Thames Water to identify and fix leaks more quickly.
David Tann, Morrison Water Services’ contract director for Thames Water, said: “Over the last few years, industry standards within fleet operations have evolved to support vehicles, drivers, managers and our operations.
“Achieving the high safety standards required to achieve FORS recognition demonstrates to our people and clients that we are continuously raising standards and are committed to ensuring safety at all times.
“Accreditation was achieved while maintaining all business objectives, targets and individual customer appointments, the team of managers and operatives on the contract deserve a big round of applause. Only a few businesses can demonstrate this level of compliance and training, I’m happy to say we are part of the best.”
Achieving Silver accreditation has been a long-term commitment for the contract team which had to provide evidence about Morrison Water Services’ commitment to managing road risk, professional development for our drivers and managers, noise pollution, emission, vehicle safety and vehicle compliance.
