Pasquill IEHS Day

Pasquill, the UK’s leading manufacturer and supplier of roof trusses and engineered timber solutions, joined its parent company Saint-Gobain colleagues globally to mark the 11th International Environmental Health and Safety (IEHS) Day on 13 October.

The day is an annual celebration and serves as an opportunity for all involved to review and enhance their own EHS policies, programs and standards. This year, the focus was on the wellbeing of team members, maintaining a Covid-19 secure environment, a zero-carbon roadmap and positive safety behaviours.

Pasquill, which has a longstanding commitment to health, safety and sustainability, spent the workday receiving additional training on the safe loading and unloading of timber products onto lorries. The team also attended online seminars on IEHS’s main themes, which outlined Pasquill’s ambition to ensure staff wellbeing in the new normal.

The day also marked the release of Saint-Gobain Off-Site Solution Division’s EHS Road Map. The Off-Site group comprises Pasquill, Roofspace Solutions, International Timber and Scotframe, and was created to improve the quality and speed of construction using off-site methods.

Together, they are working towards a target of zero emissions, with the roadmap highlighting the concrete steps being taken over the next 10 years to improve every aspect of EHS operations. This includes training, standardisation and certification among others.

Philip Pointon, Sustainability Director, at Pasquill, said: “International EHS Day represents the very best about Pasquill, Saint-Gobain and our sister companies. The environment, health and safety are the values we champion above any others, but we understand that actions speak louder than words.

“IEHS Day is a brilliant occasion for everyone at Pasquill to communicate and celebrate all the EHS gains we achieve across the year, and look towards the targets we want to meet next. A lot of hard work goes into maintaining our EHS track record, so it’s rewarding to get together and acknowledge that.”
