The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS), of which Jaama is an Associate member, has published a new tyre management guide to advise members on how best practice can help improve tyre wear, increase vehicle safety and reduce a vehicle’s environmental impact.

The new ‘FORS Tyre Management Guide for Operators’ highlights the positive impact a robust tyre management policy can have not only on fleet safety but also on fuel efficiency whilst helping members manage and improve the environmental impact of each vehicle.

The Guide seeks to help the diverse FORS membership base of HGV, van, passenger carrying vehicle (PCV) and car fleets meet the requirement at FORS Bronze level, which stipulates they must have a tyre management policy and supporting procedures in place to help ensure tyres are correctly managed.

The Gudie also includes:

  • A range of practical advice to help FORS members build their tyre management policy
  • Information on the importance of correct tyre inflation
  • The impact of wheel security, tyre selection, tyre markings, tyre retreading and sets out tyre tread depths by vehicle type, noting possible fines incurred if vehicles are found to be using unroadworthy tyres.

Jaama is firmly focused on helping fleets achieve compliance best practice through Key2 implementation and was the first fleet software supplier to become an Associates FORS member. Many Jaama customers have already achieved FORS bronze, silver or gold accreditation.
