Ground Control achieve 5 stars in external RISQS audit

 

ground-control-RISQS-LogoWe recently completed our annual Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme (RISQS) audit. Administered by Achilles on behalf of Network Rail, the audit reviews our overall management systems and rail specific requirements.

The audit is split into a number of sections: Industry Minimum Requirements (IMR) – which looks at a variety of aspects from working hours and fatigue management through to plant, equipment and lifting equipment; the Sentinel Scheme – the management of rail qualified personnel; Railway Interface Planning (RIPS) – the Safe System of Work process, and for the first time, Plant Operations Scheme (POS) – looking at how we manage On-Track Plant (Road Rail Vehicles).

The audit, led by HSQE Manager, Greg Buckley with assistance from H&S Manager, Karl Jones and the Rail Compliance team, took place over 3 days and involved us demonstrating through detailed evidence, how we manage work, our procedures, implementing these on the ground e.g. site planning, audit and inspection, drugs and alcohol screening, Sentinel sponsorship and fatigue management.

We successfully passed the audit and achieved the maximum 5 stars available and our thanks goes to everyone who assisted us in along the way.

We are now in the process of obtaining our Plant Operations Scheme licence and upgrading our provisional Principal Contractor’s licence to full so watch this space!

UK Construction Online is updated daily, with the latest news across all sectors within the construction industry and all stakeholders are promoted on both social media and to a mailing list of over 122,000 subscribers.
