Exploring Cordless Technology for Net Zero Ambition
Exploring Cordless Technology for Glanville's Net Zero Ambition
Being Glanville Environmental, it's safe to say we take the Environment seriously. We are currently reviewing innovative ways of achieving Net Zero carbon emissions by reducing our carbon footprint at the source. One way we are going to achieve this is by using battery technology with renewable energy charging stations within each of our depots.
As a well-established drainage and civil engineering company, Glanville understands the importance of safe working within the industry and prides itself on a dedicated approach to health and safety by finding innovative ways to prioritise safety and spearhead Glanville's All-Safe campaign. The SHE department works closely with Operations exploring ways to innovate and source technology that provides cutting-edge, effective, and efficient solutions to working within this industry that entirely satisfy health and safety initiatives. Innovative solutions will save time while increasing output, ultimately allowing Glanville to continue producing excellent engineering solutions across the Southwest with key clients.
In early October, we thoroughly enjoyed visiting the Hilti Group at Westpoint Arena in Exeter to explore ways in which we can provide greater work output safely with their new Nuron range of cordless battery-powered tools. When sustainability and environmental impact are of high importance, we have been assessing the usage of fuel-operated heavy-duty equipment within our fleet and portfolio of works, recognising that fuel fumes, engine noise, and heavy equipment pose potential high risks when working and we're surveying solutions to overcome this hurdle working towards Glanville's net-zero goal while pushing for optimal health and safety minimising the risk of HAVS.
Glanville's Operations Delivery Manager, Paul Miller, and SHE Advisor, Hollie Cushion, got hands-on assessing the range of available Hilti power tools during the event and analysed how they will benefit our groundworks team while performing high-risk jobs. After exploring the cordless technology available to the construction industry we're keen to assess the market, allowing our SHE team to explore how it can innovate, drive health & safety initiatives, and improve work output across the Glanville Group.
