LUL - S1552
Contract QUENSH conditions
|Publication Date:||1 November 2016|
QUENSH applies to every contract for works, activities or services supplied to LU which take place on LU Operational Property or other LU premises which affect / impact upon the operational railway. The Client determines the relevant conditions on the basis of risk associated with the works, activities or services. The Client may apply QUENSH, in its entirety or in part, to any other contract that affects LU's business.
The project scope will determine the standards, or parts of standards, that must apply.
Where a concession may be required to an applicable standard, the relevant LU client representative must refer to LU standard S1641 "Concessions to Standards".
When a project is underway, new or changed standards must not be used to vary scope, particularly beyond design 'freeze', unless the change relates to a change in law or there is a demonstrable cost benefit.
The purpose of the Contract QUENSH (Quality, Environmental, Safety and Health) Conditions is to control risk down the supply chain for contracted work on LU Operational Property or other LU premises which affect / impact upon the operational railway.
QUENSH enables the Client to identify, against the particular package of work, what risks need to be considered during implementation. The relevant QUENSH requirements can then be agreed with the Supplier and applied to the contract to mitigate those risks.
QUENSH is therefore a document which will enable suppliers working under an agreement with LU to cascade the appropriate LU requirements down their supply chain to ensure that risks are understood and controls embedded in plans and working arrangements.
Note: The requirements detailed in this standard are in addition to legislative requirements, British and European standards, industry good practice and other Category 1 Standards.
