Asbestos can kill people and cripple businesses. We can train your staff in asbestos awareness. We can also carry out asbestos surveys for you, so that everyone is protected from this lethal material.
If you have premises where asbestos may be present, you need a documented Asbestos Management Plan. If you are a contractor employing workers who carry out trades on site, your staff need externally audited asbestos awareness training.
A huge thank you to Chris for the great job he did on the abrasive wheels course on Thursday! I was really impressed with the amount of detail he covered in such a short space of time and he really made it interesting. I was pleased that he covered details regarding the law and the HSE which is important for everyone in the company to know. The practical application at the end was excellent as he really tested everyone on their knowledge. It’s always important to ensure people not just listen to the details but actually understand why they are doing things a certain way so that part of the course was so crucial.
Chris also asked me to try my hand at the practical application which was extremely useful, if a little nerve wracking! It gave me a much better understanding of the importance of how the machines work and how best to keep everyone safe.

I would like to take this opportunity to express our thanks and gratitude for the professional and swift manner in which you have updated our company’s safety requirements.
As the Health & Safety Director for the company I am heartened to see that over the last 2 years we have not had a single accident on site. Not even a minor incident!
This is due in part, to our safety officer attending your varied training courses, but mainly it is because of your excellent input to our safety regime and your friendly but firm approach to the men on site.
I have recommended your services to others and will continue to do so. Many thanks.
Ecological Planning & Research Limited has been using the services of Award H&S Limited since 2007. We are particularly impressed with their bespoke approach to our requirements, something which larger impersonal H&S Consultancies never seem to achieve. They are particularly good at listening to us and are genuinely interested in our business and ensuring that we meet, and comply with, our H&S requirements. Chris and his team are always contactable by phone or email should we need guidance, and make themselves available to meet up on site if we have issues that require their expertise.
They always keep us up to speed with new legislation and ensure that we follow this through with our own internal policies, procedures, training and risk assessments. Our staff really enjoy Chris’ training workshops as he manages to deliver what is a serious subject in an interesting, interactive and enlightening manner.
I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Award H&S Limited to other companies and would be more than happy to discuss this with anybody who is considering using their services.

In blocks of flats there is a need to have an asbestos survey to cover the common areas (such as stairs and corridors) under the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.
