Up and Under Group

5 star rail supplier

During our recent RISQS audit we were assessed once more as a 5 star rail supplier.  The audit, which is spread over two days looks at a range of performance criteria including safety and compliance with a range of rail specific standards.  This is the third time we have been awarded 5 star status. It represents the effort and dedication of a special team at the Up and Under Group.

Work currently being undertaken ranges from inspection and investigation of stations, track side buildings and other structures, development of digital recording and reporting systems and we anticipate our contracting division commencing vegetation clearance works of both structures and cuttings in the near future to facilitate inspection work.

This audit success follows closely on the news that we have once again passed our 9001 and 18001 audits.

 

The RISQS auditors commented that moving on from our 5 star rating in 2016 that:

The company has rationalised the accident and incident reporting process as well as the process for raising concerns and nonconforming elements associated with the management system and processes. The consolidated process was now contained within the Business Improvements initiative and involved the workforce and is discussed monthly at management meetings.

 (As a side line they mentioned that “Dave manages the stores very well and Sue makes a fantastic cup of tea!”)

How’s that for an end to end service.
