What is RISQS?
We are the single entry point for suppliers to the rail industry. Buyers of products and services throughout the GB rail industry use RISQS as its supplier qualification service.
In short we help suppliers sell in to the GB rail industry by providing an open, fair and transparent way for them to be formally recognised as capable providers of products and services.
This means we support Network Rail, Transport for London, passenger and freight operating companies, rolling stock organisations, main infrastructure contractors and many other buying organisations in the management of supply chain risk.
The scheme embraces rail’s qualification arrangements previously known as Link-up. RISQS is industry-owned, sponsored by a board of representatives from across the rail industry. This reports into the RSSB Board, and RSSB provides a range of services to support operational delivery of the scheme.
This provides the industry ownership and governance of its supplier qualification arrangements.
In December 2014, RSSB signed an agreement with Achilles Information Ltd, securing provision of audit services and access to the related IT platform for RISQS through to April 2017.
By involving Achilles, industry is benefiting from their experience of running its predecessor, Link-up, for over 20 years.
SMAS is a H&S Assessment organisation
SMAS is a H&S Assessment organisation that takes great pride in our professionalism, customer service and efficiency.
Working with many of the major UK housebuilders we have developed experience and expertise in new build construction but we also deal with many other construction organisations.
As a dedicated H&S assessment company we do not get distracted by other activities such as H&S Training or Consultancy. This also means that you can be confident that there is no conflict of interest in any of our assessment decisions.
All of our Assessors are qualified H&S professionals, have completed the SSIP Assessor Training and are audited annually by an independently appointed SSIP Auditor.
We have developed our own software to manage our Contractor database which means that we process work smoothly and efficiently. Allowing technology to manage much of the routine work means that our staff can concentrate on talking to our members, guiding them through the process and exceeding their expectations.
All of our assessments are undertaken In-House allowing us to offer a consistent standard across assessments. The minimum standards we assess against are clearly set out in the SSIP Core Criteria. The skill of the assessor is to interpret the information provided and ensure it relates to the nature and scope of the business being assessed.
