Reducing The Environmental Impact Of Scaffolding In Burton On Trent

By on May 10, 2019 in Blog, Scaffolding |

If you are undertaking a project that requires access scaffolding in Burton On Trent, we’re sure you’ve already considered the health and safety implications. But what about the impact of your construction work on the environment?

According to recent research, the construction industry accounts for 40% of worldwide energy usage. What’s more, 23% of air pollution and 50% of climatic change is driven by the construction sector. In other words, with this information at our disposal, it’s vital that construction projects are assessed for environmental impact.

Environmentally Conscious Scaffolding in Burton On Trent

At Network Scaffold, we are committed to protecting the environment as far as possible. This is reflected in our environmental policy and our dedication to providing comprehensive training for operatives.

For scaffolding in Burton on Trent and beyond we make it our mission to fulfil our duty of care in all areas. This includes:

Reducing waste and negative emissions

 Our operatives strive to ensure that all resources are used as efficiently as possible. However, where this is not feasible, we always recycle and dispose of waste in a way that complies to regulations.

Conserving energy wherever possible

In construction work, the use of machinery is almost inevitable. That being said, our operatives remain vigilant for opportunities to conserve energy. Our vehicle routes are planned to maximise time and reduce pollution. And in addition, when machinery is not in use we always switch it off. This works to protect the environment and is therefore also cost-effective for our clients.

Regular Staff Training

Above all, our environmental policy is important to us as a business. And because of this, we ensure that all our operatives and staff receive regular training. As legislation and best practice can change over time, we make sure everyone in the business remains up-to-date and compliant in their day-to-day operations to minimise our impact on the environment.
