When Oliver accidentally discovered a dinosaur fossil when there was a school swimming pool, the Foreman called Miss Jenny, who in turn called the Fat Controller, who called in a group of experts to examine it.
As a second in command, the Foreman is known for being very strict with the Pack.
The Foreman originally wore a black suit with a bowler hat, which was deemed unsafe around certain construction areas. However, since the CGI series, he was seen with a construction hat and a blue suit.
