Our work in the Transport Sector includes the rail network, buses, taxis, vehicle hire and activities undertaken by baggage handlers within airports. Each of these have their own unique health and safety risks which require specialist knowledge of the industry to fully understand. At PHSC we have that expertise; all you have to do is call or email us and we will respond promptly to help you.
Whether you are looking for help with training your staff in health and safety, auditing your management systems or integrating procedures with Achilles RISQS (Link-Up) type systems, we have the expertise to meet your needs.
We have a team of highly experienced health and safety, quality and environmental (HSQE) consultants with over 20 years’ experience of both consulting and auditing compliance across the railway industry, which is one of the highest regulated forms of transport in the UK.
We are experienced in developing systems from scratch as well as auditing or maintaining existing systems to achieve or maintain Achilles RISQS (Link-Up) audits. We specialise in integrating systems with ISO9001 (Quality), ISO 14001 (Environmental), ISO 45001 (Health and Safety), and Achilles RISQS audit protocol(s) and Sentinel Scheme Rules.
We often support contractors working in the rail industry to design and implement systems that are Achilles RISQS compliant too, and this gives us the opportunity to help them achieve excellence in their processes so as to optimise the chances of winning tender applications.
Bus and Coach Industry
We have supported local and national bus and coach companies over the last 25 years in all aspects of employee and public health, safety and environmental management. This has included development of an integrated management system which is accredited to ISO 9001: ISO 14001 and ISO45001. We also liaise when necessary, with key regulators such as the Health and Safety Executive , the Environment Agency and VOSA.
Our work with The Go-Ahead Group has been as their auditors for health and safety management for over 20 years and we have developed the audit system as the business as grown and developed. Our qualitative scoring system, constructed within Sharepoint, enables oversight for the Board to measure and monitor their progress against their KPIs.
For transport clients based in London we have enabled compliance with standards set by TFL; all systems we help to develop and maintain are aligned with ISO 9001 (Quality, ISO 14001 (Environmental Management) and OHSAS 18001 / ISO 45001 (Health and Safety) in the event that our client decides to apply for accreditation.
Our support has included the workshop areas where there are significant risks associated with vehicle movement, and occupational health and hygiene risks associated with exposure to fumes, vibration and noise. Our risk assessment work has extended into vehicle route assessments for buses that follow fixed routes on a daily basis. And our general workplace consultancy has ranged from issues such as management of violence to staff, food safety in the canteen through to waste management and minimisation.
Our work with clients such as Enterprise Rent A Car has involved us providing ongoing advice and support in all areas of health and safety management, and also environmental management. This has included Due Diligence auditing for environmental management compliance as well as development and auditing of procedures to meet UK health and safety standards.
With over 20 years experience in the motor vehicle industry, we have a highly developed A-Z Management system designed specifically to take the bureaucracy and hard work out of maintaining health and safety and environmental management. This system is used by motor dealers working independently as well as larger groups.
Whether you need your risk assessments completed or reviewed, your workers trained, or your safety policies and systems developed, we have the experience to help you with minimal time and disruption.
