UKATA to highlight importance of asbestos training at September event
The UK Asbestos Training Association (UKATA), has announced its intention to exhibit at Contamination Expo Series 2018, taking place this year at Birmingham’s NEC on 12 and 13 September. This will be the third year UKATA has attended and from stand 5S80, UKATA will be raising awareness of the ongoing risks associated with asbestos while advising delegates on membership opportunities and associate status’.
This year will also see UKATA host several seminars in theatre 5U60, where delegates will be able to hear from key industry experts, asbestos professionals and health and safety specialists who will discuss the main asbestos issues impacting on business and employees today.
“The last two years has proven the value of attendance at the Expo, so UKATA is delighted to be involved for a third year,” said UKATA General Manager, Craig Evans. “Delegates will still be able to source information from our stand, but the seminar theatre allows us to address the issues that delegates told us mattered to them in 2018 in more depth. We look forward to welcoming people along.”
The Contamination Expo Series 2018 brings together the latest solutions, suppliers and experts in the field of contamination, over six specific shows. With Asbestos in Soils such a big issue, UKATA is based in the Land Remediation Expo. With the government target of 300,000 new homes by the middle of the next decade, brownfield development is coming to the fore and with it, a knowledge of asbestos in soils.
“We will certainly be speaking a lot about asbestos in soils, but we have our wider remit to educate on the risks associated with working with asbestos generally to address,” added Craig. “We will have a lot to say from our stand about our existing members and our approved asbestos training providers nationwide, while our experts have the expertise and hands on experience to drive home the message that asbestos remains the UK’s biggest workplace killer. The Expo is the perfect place to do just that.”
