Anti Idling Policies were introduced into the FORS Standard in Version 4.0 under section O4 back in October 2016 but looking at some recent FORS audit results people just aren’t getting the message, here’s what the standard says
O4 Engine idling
Fleet operators shall have a written policy and procedure to reduce instances of engine-idling.
To ensure that the impact of emissions on health and fuel efficiency can be minimised, drivers
shall avoid unnecessary engine-idling while loading, waiting or stationary in traffic
for long periods.
The associate Guidance document – which can be found HERE
expands on this to help Operators comply
The FORS Anti-Idling Toolkit – which includes sample policy texts can be found HERE
