Morrison Rail Services, the specialist rail division of Morrison Utility Services, has achieved BS11000 accreditation, the British Standard for collaborative working.
The success follows a detailed accreditation process during which Morrison Rail Services was assessed for management systems and activities that support a collaborative approach.
Based on an eight stage approach, BS11000 is designed to allow organisations, regardless of size and sector, to improve efficiency and partnership working; particularly those within or managing a supply chain.
The benefits are wide ranging and often specific to an organisation’s business objectives. Assessments are independently carried out by BSI and the value of certification is the proof to stakeholders that best practice in collaborative working is being followed within an organisation.
Morrison Rail Services first collaborative relationship within the process has been established with Imtech and centres on the development of a complementary offering to the division’s usual scope of work, incorporating mechanical and electrical internal works at stations and depots.
Jim Arnold, Chief Operating Officer, Morrison Utility Services, comments: “The benefits of collaborative working are widely acknowledged across all of our main infrastructure markets and client organisations such as Network Rail are actively encouraging their major contractors to adopt collaborative working approaches. Our accreditation to BS11000 standard underlines Morrison Rail Services’ commitment to forging successful collaborative relationships with our clients and suppliers within the rail sector and will form a solid platform for further growth and development of this business.”
