RISQS-logo

Ainscough Crane Hire is the first lifting services company to be awarded a 5 Star rating by the rail industry. The RISQS Audit is the GB rail industry’s programme that pre-qualifies suppliers to work in the industry. The 5 Star rating demonstrates Ainscough Crane Hire’s uncompromising approach to QHSE and our commitment to being “The Safe Choice” for the rail industry. Ainscough Crane Hire was assessed under the RISQS Audit programme and recognition scheme, run by Achilles.
‘Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme’ (RISQS) has been developed from the GB rail industry’s Link-up scheme and audited by Achilles. The scheme is governed by the newly formed RISQS Board. The 5 star rating is highly reputed and recognises our safety practices.

“I am delighted that Ainscough Crane Hire is the first lifting services company in the country to be awarded five stars. QHSE is embedded in everything we do” Ian Balmforth Ainscough Crane Hire Operations Support Director added: “Being the first lifting services company in the UK to achieve this high 5* star rating is a credit to our team and the specialist knowledge they have developed to support the needs of the rail industry.”
