Since Advance TRS established in 2011, advancing less fortunate people has always been a central motivator for founder Andy Ridout and the Advance TRS team. To date, our staff have raised over £35,000 for charities completing an incredible array of personal challenges to raise money and awareness for those less fortunate.
Challenges completed by our team so far include;
1 x Tough Mudder | 3 x Surrey Half Marathon | 2 x Tour de Yorkshire | 3 x London Marathon 5 x Ride 100 | 3 x Iron Man | 1 x Mount Everest base-camp trek | 1 x Mount Kenya summit 1 x Rough Runner | 1 x Mount Kilimanjaro summit
Our main partner charity to date has been Railway Children, an international children’s charity that helps at-risk children on the streets of the UK, India and East Africa. The charity funds rescue workers and street teams that seek out vulnerable children living on the streets before potential abusers get to them first.
This year Andy is challenging himself with yet another IronMan and a trek to summit the highest freestanding mountain in the world, Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money and awareness for Railway Children. Support his campaign and donate online here.

Health & Safety
Due to the industries Advance TRS operate within, it is essential that health and safety is a number one priority for us. We are committed to shaping a health and safety culture within the workplace, that helps drive our day-to-day actions and communications.
We are consistently taking steps in order to reduce the number of accidents and incidents in the workplace and on-site through regular communication of industry information, HSE updates, company policies and a thorough review of procedures.
Improved workplace safety requires a concerted effort from everyone within the industry and we work closely with clients, candidates and employees to align ourselves with industry initiatives that will help to enhance everyone’s perception and actions.
Our Health and safety Management system is OHSAS 18001 accredited and we have a Quality Management System that is ISO 9001 accredited. These systems include very clear guidelines on our approach to managing important aspects of the daily working environment such as working hours, fatigue, stress and accidents and incidents.
We produce a monthly safety communication that we send to all of our workers. Read the latest safety communication.
At Advance TRS we are committed to reducing the impact our operations have on the environment through sustainable practices.
Whilst we recognise that internal activities may have limited environmental impact, there are steps that we take to continuously improve our environmental performance and thereby reduce or prevent damage to the environment.
We strive to:
- Comply with all environmental legislation, regulations and requirements.
- Foster an environmentally conscious culture through proper training and communication throughout the workforce.
- Work with our external stakeholders to help further develop our environmental policy.
- Monitor and review our environmental performance on an annual basis at a minimum.
In particular, we are committed to using common practices in order to reduce our consumption of materials such as paper and plastic (i.e. sending documents digitally), reducing our carbon footprint by utilising public transportation or carpooling wherever possible and reducing wastage by ensuring that as much of our waste as possible is either recycled or reused.
