It has been a busy time for Global Rail Construction’s Quality and Compliance Team, having had consecutive months of external accreditation audits.
May saw the business pass its annual RISQS audit with the highest rating of 5 stars last month. RISQS is the railway industry supplier qualification scheme, and is the preferred route for suppliers to engage with their customers through a fair, open and transparent third-party qualification process.
In June, the team has overseen the successful completion of an audit of the company’s ISO9001:2008 accreditation – the international standard for Quality Assurance. This surveillance audit of the quality management systems was undertaken by NQA (part of NTS), which is one of the leading independent providers of accredited certification, training and support services to help organisations perform better in quality, environment, energy, sustainability and health & safety management.
During the three-day audit, there were no NC’s (non-compliances) raised however, one opportunity for improvement was identified with reference to the collection of customer feedback.
Peter Coleman, Global Rail Construction’s Head of Compliance, was delighted and said:
“Special thanks again to all those who participated in the audit both in the office and also at the 820 Romford Project.
“Our philosophy is to never stop improving, we believe we can always can do better, consistently, continually and sustainably. That’s what we strive for at Global Rail Construction and it’s what we’re here to help achieve, transforming our business and building for future success.”
