D2 Rail Successfully Passes RISQS Audit with 5 Stars

D2 Rail is pleased to announce that we have successfully passed our Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme (RISQS) audit, achieving the maximum 5 stars for another year.

Administered by Achilles on behalf of Network Rail, our management systems are audited specifically for the rail services that we deliver.

The audit this year was split into a number of areas:

  • Industry Minimum Requirements (IMR) – to examine a variety of aspects including matters such as working hours;
  • The Sentinel Scheme – how we manage our rail personnel and their competencies;
  • Railway Interface Planning (RIPS) – regarding our Safe System of Work processes;

Our team was led by Managing Director, David Diesbergen and took place over 1 day.  Our team demonstrated, through detailed evidence, how we deliver our programme management services, through policy, procedure and process – particularly with reference to their implementation on railway schemes, which include; project planning, audits and inspections, D&A screening, sponsorship and fatigue management.

A delighted David added:

“This is a fantastic achievement. The audits are a large undertaking and to retain our 5 star rating for another year is a testament to the whole D2 Rail team. Without this qualification, we wouldn’t be able to operate. Well done team!”
