To identify all hazards associated with our activities and ensure that risks are eliminated or controlled to a level as low as reasonably practical
To consult with our employees on matters of health and safety and ensure that each employee is aware of their responsibility to take reasonable care of their own health and safety and other people’s health and safety and welfare and to report any situation which may pose a threat to the well being of any other person
To ensure that the manner in which we carry out our undertaking does not affect the health and safety of none employees, including contractors, temps, visitors and members of the public by our operations.
T.J.S. Tree Services Limited is committed to minimising the impact its activities have on both the local and global environment, by taking all possible steps to prevent pollution, to avoid damage to habitats, and to reduce its carbon footprint.
The key points of our strategy to achieve this are as follows:
T.J.S. Tree Services and its workforce are committed to meet or exceed all relevant legal requirements, Environmental Legislation Standards, and Codes of Practice.
Nesting birds and their eggs are protected by law. Many other species such as bats and badgers are also protected, we work within the guidelines set out in the Wildlife and Countryside ct 1981, and Countryside and Rights of Way 2000 (CROW).
We promote reductions rather than removal of trees, where possible, and encourage replanting. Where possible we leave habitat piles (hibernacula) or dead standing stems (monoliths) to encourage diversity of wildlife, and minimise the impact on the local fauna.
We promote the reuse of waste materials, by selling our waste wood as logs for fuel, or as wood chip. All other green waste is sent to green waste recycling facilities (for composting), to minimise use of landfill. We operate in compliance with our Environment Agency Waste Disposal License.
We aim to minimise energy wastage, and reduce our carbon footprint, by using the most efficient routes of travel and the most appropriate vehicles for each job.
Vehicles and machinery are not left running idling when not in use.
We correspond via email where possible, and are working towards a paper free office.
