Over the past few decades, the world has been waking up to the injuries that our civilization has been inflicting on the health of our planet. Through scientific evidence, government policies and greater awareness, people and businesses are making changes that can hopefully offset the worst of the damage – and the construction industry is no different! Here are some ways that a scaffolding company can become greener:
Building sites can greatly disrupt the lives of local wildlife so it is important to be as careful as possible. Putting up scaffolding near a tree or hedge, for example, could damage bird nests. You must also make a big effort to take your waste and rubbish away with you when a project finishes.
Regardless of the size of your project, it is usually a given that construction will use a lot of materials. By using materials that are sustainable or easily recycled, you are preventing pollution and more raw material from being mined and extracted from the earth. Some of the alternatives that you may wish to use are recycled aggregate, wood, bamboo and recycled plastic.
Scaffolding is a vital component in how the building industry operates – try building a house without some! Nonetheless, it can be very heavy. This can lead to high petrol costs and pollution when transporting scaffolding to various locations. By changing to lightweight scaffolding you can cut down on your carbon emissions and save some money on costs!
By getting your employees on the same side as you, you can ensure that everyone is pulling in the right direction when trying to make your scaffolding business greener. By educating your workers so that they understand why you are making the changes, they will be more amenable to changing their working habits and supportive of your changes in policy.
