Independent Safety Validation

A request from a Train Operating Company required The QSS Group Ltd to supply an Independent Competent Person to manage the Safety Validation for their New Depot Project.


The new depot required all outstanding design and operational issues to be closed out through the construction stage to allow occupation and operation of the site as planned.


QSS delivered a program of work that incorporated the Independent Assessor role associated with Network Rail GRIP 6 Construction programme and the TOC Safety Validation Process for the New Depot.

QSS managed the Independent Assessor duties involved in the Validation process to allow approval by the Operator's Head of Safety through the application of their Safety Management System and National Standards such as Railway Group Standards and Technical Specifications of Interoperability (TSI’s). This process assured compliance with the Operator's Safety Management System and Standards.


Using our competent and experienced consultants we were able to deliver the management and safety validation requirements of this project and ensure the transfer of operations were carried out in a safe and effective manner. QSS have significant experience in similar roles and have a wealth of experience to draw on.
