Internal Auditing Support at a Train Operating Company
QSS consultants have recently completed a programme of work to support a TOC with maintaining its ISO Certification in ISO 14001. This involved undertaking an internal audit programme involving stations and maintenance depots. The audits involved the examination of facilities and practices and of identification of elements of good practices, where improvements could be made to enhance the system.
A review was also done of the feasibility of extending the extent of the ISO 14001 EMS to all parts of the network along with the implementation of a new ISO 50001 Energy Management System within the TOC.
The QSS consultant produced reports for TOC detailing the findings along with helpful recommendations for changes to support the re-certification efforts. Advice was provided to the TOC on the latest government guidance for specific environmental Aspects and about new legislation affecting the rail industry.
