Ainscough Crane Hire has retained its Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme (RISQS) accreditation.
RISQS is central to the safe and cost-effective procurement of railway products and services, providing assurance for over 90 buyers including Network Rail and Transport for London (TfL) to do business with confidence with over 4,000 suppliers.
RISQS is also used by passenger and freight operating companies, rolling stock organisations, main infrastructure contractors, and many other buying organisations in the management of supply chains.
The renewal of the accreditation follows an audit earlier this year. The RISQS Audit assessed Ainscough’s management systems and resources, the business to demonstrate compliance against industry-wide assurance requirements.
Sharon Fisher, QHSE co-ordinator for Ainscough Crane Hire said: “Ainscough Crane Hire is proud of our regularly renewed industry accreditations, all of which demonstrate our commitment both to our customers and improving standards within the industry.
“Such accreditations are integral to Make the Safe Choice and signify the levels of quality and safety that are hallmarks of every project we deliver.
“The RISQS accreditation is particularly significant to us at a time when we are proud to be working on landmark railway schemes across the country, from the early stages of HS2 to the Great North Rail Project.”
