Star Platforms pass their ISO 4001 and FORS Silver audits

UK powered access company, Star Platforms, have recently passed both ISO 4001 and FORS Silver audits, further cementing their commitment to their environmental and safety policies. 

Since the company began in 2014, compliance with relevant accreditations has been important to the leadership team at Star Platforms. The company have recently successfully passed their SafeHire audit and can now add to that the successful completion of both the ISO 14001 and FORS Silver accreditations they have held since 2017 and 2016 respectively. 

ISO 14001 – Environmental Management Systems. 

The standard includes the need for continual improvement of an organisation’s systems and approach to environmental concerns. Having committed to achieving ISO 14001:2015 accreditation, the company have created an Environmental Management System which has helped to develop a standard that has been implemented across the whole business.

The development of a robust internal audit schedule has helped to manage the effectiveness of the company’s Environmental Management System and to include more of Star Platforms’ employees throughout this important process.

FORS Silver – Fleet operator recognition scheme

The FORS accreditation scheme covers all aspects of safety, fuel efficiency, vehicle emissions and improved operations. Silver accreditation confirms that they employ good practice and comply with the requirements laid out by the FORS Standard. By achieving FORS Silver accreditation, the fleet is compliant with the CLOCS Standard for Construction Logistics and with TfL’s WRRR (Work Related Road Risk).  Star Platforms have successfully maintained their Bronze accreditation which forms part of the FORS Silver accreditation process.

Ian Mitchell, Operations Director, commented: “We are incredibly proud to have successfully passed both our ISO 14001 and FORS Silver audits. These accreditations have helped to create a consistent standard across our entire depot network and demonstrates our full commitment to health, safety and the environment.”
