EirGrid operate an integrated HS&E Management System, certified to ISO14001. We identified staff travel, commuting to and from work and on company business as one of our significant environmental aspects. In looking to determine how we could manage and improve on this aspect we availed of the Smarter Workplace programme, initially with the travel survey. The survey allowed us focus on area we could improve and develop SMART objectives. These included the tax saver scheme, cycle to work scheme, increasing cycle racks, improving shower & changing facilities, offering bike maintenance workshops and developing a driving for work protocol offering safety & environmental improvements”
