Hire giant on the right track with RISQS award

A-PLANT has announced it has passed RSSB’s Rail Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme (RISQS) following an ‘extensive’ audit.

The hire giant’s Nottingham-based performance standards office received the maximum award of five stars.

RISQS is an official qualification scheme, which allows suppliers to be formally recognised as being capable providers of products and services to the rail market.

A-Plant explained that the audit is designed to ensure the company’s operating systems are fully aligned to comply with rail industry standards, comprising health and safety, quality and environmental practices.

Chris Ryan, head of A-Plant’s performance standards department said, “We are extremely proud to have received a five star RISQS award and the audit outcome is testament to our team’s continued hard work in maintaining the highest possible standards in this sector. A-Plant is committed to achieving health and safety excellence and we hope this latest pass will help us to open up new and exciting opportunities, whilst assuring existing customers that they are working with the very best in the industry.”
