BOAL Extrusion UK has marked the achievement of 100 consecutive days without time-loss injuries at its production facility in Shepshed by planting 100 trees in collaboration with Co-Treetment, a local organization focused on reforestation.
The safety of all personnel is a key priority for BOAL Extrusion UK, and reaching this milestone is a reason to celebrate. "There is no negotiating on safety at our facility. It is actually our key priority and an essential part of our ESG strategy. ESG stands for Environment, Social, and Governance, meaning that in everything we do, we check whether our actions comply with the high standards in these areas we've committed to", explains Emma Swann, Finance Director of the UK branch.
BOAL Extrusion UK has committed to planting additional trees for every next 100 injury-free days, with the goal of creating a BOAL forest that will benefit the local community and, of course, to help ensure that the extrusion plant remains a safe place to work.
David Shepherd, Production Manager at BOAL, said, "The trees were planted less than 5 miles from our factory, so it is a really local initiative. We have committed to this cause and will, for the foreseeable future, plant additional trees for every next 100 injury-free days. That would not only be good for the nearby community, but it would also mean that our plant is and stays a safe place to work. At this moment we are, in fact, already over 150 consecutive injury-free days. I can't wait to get those next 100 trees planted!"
