Cygnum is a proud partner of #CIFsafety22. Today’s theme examines the importance of working safely at height.
When working at height we assess the dangers and plan accordingly. Our site teams ensure the correct PPE gear is worn at all times. Fall arrest netting to the underside of trusses is fitted to enable the work to be carried out safely.

The data in the new report on Embodied Carbon from the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Local Government, and Heritage speaks for itself.
Accelerating the use of timber in construction is vital to meet the Climate Action and Low Carbon Development Act 2021 commitments of net zero carbon by 2050, and achieve a 50% reduction in carbon emissions by 2030.
The report states ‘It is apparent that unless steps are taken to address the issue there will be a significant increase in construction-related carbon emissions.’ https://bit.ly/3ScgUJY
