Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) means taking a holistic approach to our operations and the way in which we work. Turner Access is renowned for Best Practice in Access and Scaffolding and we strive to ensure we work at best practice in every area of our business.
We engage with all relevant stakeholders, including our customers, employees and supply chain and consider the implications of our operations on the environment and the wider community. We view the integration of CSR into our everyday business as fundamental to the success and longevity of the company.
Reducing Waste & Sustainable Materials
Turner Access works closely with suppliers to reduce the waste generated by the packaging of materials and products. Re-useable pallets and containers are used as much as possible and where packaging cannot be removed completely, it is re-cycled. Plywood purchased for decking is purchased under PEFC certified conditions ensuring that the plywood is sourced and manufactured from sustainable sources.
At Turner Access, tracking systems have been introduced on all vehicles. Part of the benefit of this is the ability to report on factors that will affect fuel usage. Reduced idling time, a reduction in speed, acceleration and a reduction in unnecessary journeys all have a positive impact on fuel usage.
Longevity & Quality
The Scaffold Systems we use within our contracting operation are designed for maximum longevity. Turner Access use the highest quality of materials – high yield steel, stainless steel, high grade aluminium – to manufacture products to the highest protective measures available (hot dip galvanised to ISO1461).
