Instarmac Group plc are delighted to announce that their fleet of 37 vehicles and 36 drivers have been identified as a ‘Low-Risk Operator’ by the Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA).
The DVSA use the Operator Compliance Risk Score (OCRS) to determine the safety of a vehicle based on 2 factors – Roadworthiness and Traffic. The DVSA use this score, based on data collected over a 3 year rolling period, to give a company their risk type – Low, Medium or High.
Data is taken from annual tests, roadside inspections and inspections at the operators’ premises. These inspections include vehicle tests, driver’s hours and any tachograph offences where points are given for any defect or infringement of the rules. The more serious the defect the more points are given.
To be classified as low risk, an operator needs to receive a combined OCRS score of less than 10 and Instarmac Group plc were thrilled to receive a score of just 3.
This achievement is the latest in a long line for Instarmac’s award-winning fleet, the most recent being the FORS Silver Award which monitors operational performance including all aspects of safety, fuel efficiency, vehicle emissions and improved operations.
