UKATA is the leading authority in asbestos training in the UK, a privileged position that has only been achieved by a tremendous amount of hard work, dedication and a focus on Quality and Standards.

Tasked by the HSE in 2008 for managing the list of training providers for licensed asbestos work in the UK, UKATA now has over 130 fee paying Members with many more Membership applications pending.

UKATA now has a record number of members and the new Executive Committee is drawn from many diverse areas of the Asbestos Industry, providing the Association with a broad range of experience and opinions.

Continuing to set the benchmark for standards for training providers to both achieve and maintain, UKATA is building on its foundations to offer its members the information and support required to ensure compliance.


Monitoring the latest UK and European legislation means we can keep our members one step ahead and up to speed on the very latest developments and continue with them to strive for excellence.

UKATA members include both large and small, commercial and non-commercial training providers and the Associations objectives going forward are to continue to grow while servicing the diverse needs of its members and their aspirations for the future of asbestos training.


UKATA’s ongoing success is proof of the importance of what we stand for. We are now recognised as the market leader in promoting best practice among asbestos training providers. Our 40% growth in membership tells its own story and the success in supporting the HSE Training Pledge initiative demonstrates that UKATA continues to work together with the HSE, taking the lead on key asbestos training initiatives.

UKATA is always keen to talk to prospective Members who are 100% committed to the highest professional standards. For further information on UKATA, visit How to Join page or call us today on 0844 372 2810.
