TEAMFORCE Labour has achieved a five-star rating under the Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme (RISQS) the supplier pre-qualification service used by buyers of all products and services throughout the British rail industry.
The five-star rating is the highest achievable score and obtainable only by completing the audit without non-conformance's for at least two years.
The RISQS audit involved TEAMFORCE demonstrating that the company is fully committed and complies with legislation and the rail industry’s health and safety, quality and environmental standards and practices.
Gerry McCarthy (Managing Director) stated, ‘The five-star rating means that TEAMFORCE Labour continues to be formally recognised as a capable provider of services to the Rail industry. We achieved the highest rating by successfully proving we have robust processes, procedures and documentation in place. This achievement is as a result of the continuous team work in the company’
Achieving this 5-star rating increases our visibility to Network Rail, LUL/Transport for London, passenger, light rail and freight train operators, rolling stock organisations, main infrastructure contractors and other rail products and services providers in the management of supply chain risk.
What is RISQS?
RISQS, formerly known as Achilles Link-up, has been developed to provide a service for the qualification of suppliers for all products and services that are procured by the industry. RISQS supports Network Rail, LUL/Transport for London, passenger, light rail and freight train operators, rolling stock organisations, main infrastructure contractors and other rail products and services providers in the management of supply chain risk. RISQS is an independent, third party qualification assessment of a supplier’s capability to supply products and services.
