Barry Training Services Ltd to Represent UKATA at Hereford & Worcester Working Well Together


Karl Warwick, an experienced tutor from Barry Training Services Ltd, will be presenting at the Hereford & Worcester 'Working Well Together' Seminar on Asbestos Risks, Controls, and Management. This seminar is scheduled for 29th June at the Ledbury Rugby Football Club. Karl will articulate the crucial role of comprehensive asbestos training in occupational safety.

His presentation will encompass all levels of UK Asbestos Training Association (UKATA) training, including Asbestos Awareness and its scope, suitable training for non-licensed and licensed work, and the hazards associated with insufficient training.

This seminar boasts a line-up of distinguished speakers from the HSE, asbestos surveying and removal sectors, UKNAR, and includes an interview with Mavis and Ray Nye. Attendees can anticipate gaining knowledge about the legal and ethical requirements to protect their workforce from asbestos exposure, its health implications, and strategies for risk mitigation.

The seminar has been meticulously designed to equip Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) with a profound understanding of the risks and repercussions of asbestos exposure. It will also explain practical steps to manage these risks effectively. The overarching goal is to inspire SMEs to adopt a proactive approach to asbestos management, thereby safeguarding the health and safety of their employees, customers, and the broader public.

Karl Warwick, a registered tutor for UKATA member Barry Training Services, is authorised to deliver licensable work with asbestos training at the highest membership level.

Simon Rosser, from Hereford Asbestos Services and one of the organisers of the Hereford and Worcester Working Well Together Group seminar, shared:

“Herefordshire and Worcestershire Group of Working Well Together are delighted to have representation from UKATA along to our event, to provide attendees with information on the types of training needed for people who may encounter and work with asbestos.

Training is a vital part of ensuring that you and your workforce have the knowledge and skills to be equipped to recognise where asbestos may be encountered and safely handled, ensuring a healthier and safer workplace for us all.”
