Driver toolbox talks – FORS need your feedback

6th August 2016

Earlier this year FORS launched a series of toolbox talks designed to help managers to brief drivers on key legislation and areas related to the FORS Standard. The package comprises 13 toolbox talks and associated slide packs.


They are now looking to update the toolbox talks so if you have used any of them in your workplace, and they would love to hear your feedback to help shape their future development.

Here is a reminder about what the Driver Tool Box Talks consist of:

These toolbox talks provide you with valuable information and support material that will help you to promote your company’s safety, efficiency and environmental culture to your drivers and help meet the FORS bronze requirements.

As a FORS operator it’s important that your drivers understand what FORS is and what their duties are to support your accreditation under the scheme. A toolbox talk pack has been developed to help you achieve this.

This Toolbox Talk pack is made up of the following components:

  • Introduction to Toolbox Talks –  This document provides information on how to use and deliver the toolbox talks.
  • Attendance Register and Follow-up Questions – This document should be used to record the names of all those taking part in the talk and any questions asked during the talk.
  • 13 Toolbox Talks and Supporting Slide Packs – To be given to your company’s drivers / agency drivers. The talks are:
