FORS is a voluntary accreditation scheme that promotes best practice for commercial vehicle operators. It encompasses all aspects of safety, efficiency and environmental protection by encouraging and training fleet operators to measure, monitor and improve performance.
Tarmac has FORS accredited more than 1,800 vehicles since 2014 when the contractor became the first operator in the UK to be approved by FORS to undertake whole-fleet accreditation.

Tarmac is part of the CRH group and includes Blue Circle, the company that patented Portland Cement.
