Ground Control retain 5 stars in external RISQS audit!

Ground Control RISQSGround Control successfully pass annual Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme (RISQS) audit, achieving the maximum 5 stars for another year.

Administered by Achilles on behalf of Network Rail the audit reviews contractors overall management systems and rail specific requirements.

The audit is split into a number of sections: Industry Minimum Requirements (IMR) – this 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 Plant Operations Scheme (POS) – looking at how we manage On-Track Plant (Road Rail Vehicles).

The audit, led by Greg Buckley (HSQE Manager) with assistance from Karl Jones (H&S Manager) and Jonathan Coles (Rail Compliance Administrator) 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.

Senior Manager, James Hanna commented; “This is fantastic news. It’s a huge undertaking to get prepared for and endure these audits, and to retain our 5 star rating for another year is a testament to Greg and Karl’s hard work. Without it we simply wouldn’t be able to operate! Well done team!”
