UKNAR Webinar - Find a SMARTER Way to Manage Asbestos in Your Properties


Following UKNAR’s announcement of a new UK National Asbestos Register at the Contamination Expo they will be running a short webinar Tuesday 20th September 10:00am – 10:45am “A SMARTER Way to Manage Asbestos in Your Properties".

If you are a property professional responsible for the safe management of asbestos across a portfolio of properties under normal occupation, or a contractor responsible for the safety of your people working in such properties, this short live presentation will be of interest. (30 minutes followed by a 15-minute Q&A).

The recent Parliamentary inquiry into the HSE's approach to asbestos management accepted recommendations for:

  • The adoption of a central digital register of asbestos in UK non-domestic buildings
  • The use of digital technology to improve how asbestos information is communicated, particularly to contractors, by drawing on lessons from the use of digital technologies in building management and the health response to the pandemic.

So far, the Government's response to this recommendation has been very cautious. However, UKNAR is encouraged to see its emphasis on the importance of dutyholders sharing information, especially with contractors, and a clear willingness to look at improvements in compliance in this respect.

UKNAR believe their inexpensive Asbestos SMART technology can help your organisation vastly improve how valuable and potentially lifesaving asbestos information is quickly and easily communicated to staff, visitors, and contractors in your properties: better protecting your people and helping you achieve and demonstrate legal compliance with Regulation 4: Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012. It can also help you avoid the potentially considerable costs and time incurred if things go wrong.

Join their webinar to hear Andrew Paten Co-Founder of UKNAR CIC, (a social enterprise) speak in more detail about what it takes in the real world to achieve effective compliance and protect people from asbestos exposures.
