A-Plant Completes Hat-Trick of Five Star Rail Ratings

For the third consecutive year running, A-Plant has been awarded five stars in the Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme (RISQS) audit.

Five stars is the highest possible rating that can be achieved in the RISQS audit, and it demonstrates that an organisation’s business management system meets the Network Rail Sentinel Health, Safety, Operational and Competence standards required for working in the rail environment. It provides an independent, third party qualification assessment of the capability to provide products and services to meet customer requirements and the demands of the rail sector.

“It is an excellent achievement to attain the optimum rating for three years running. The audits have become increasingly rigorous and this confirms that our Performance Standards Team implements some of the industry’s most robust procedures, and importantly that our Rail locations follow them. Being RISQS audited allows us to hire equipment to rail projects, whilst assuring our customers that we surpass the highest of industry standards.”
