The RISQS audit is designed to ensure the company’s operating systems are fully aligned to comply with Rail Industries standards covering Health & Safety, Quality and Environmental practices whilst also ensuring compliance to the companies own Integrated Management Systems and ISO certifications.
The rigorous and extensive two-day audit covered a multitude of product codes encompassing both Core and Trackside modules.
The company was delighted to have been advised that several improvements had been witnessed and examples of good initiatives to our operating systems had been identified, resulting in Kemada being awarded the 5-STAR RISQS rating demonstrating a maximum score with zero deficiencies or non-conformances with only positive elements.
Company Director, Kevin Gibbons said: “To achieve a 5-STAR rating for the second year running is an achievement we can all be very proud of. The audit is extremely rigorous and the rating proves that we have demonstrated high quality procedures and processes throughout the business and that we follow each process thoroughly to ensure compliance with the required industry standards. This enables buyers the confidence that Kemada understand the industry requirements and that we deliver each project to a high standard. The audit outcome is testament to all the hard work, effort and commitment from all of our staff and I would like to thank and congratulate all involved”.
Kemada are now fully operational and prepared for Network Rail’s five-year plan to improve Britain’s railway network over the next five years starting in 2019 and completing in 2024 (Control Period 6, CP6).
