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.
I can formally confirm that Award Health & Safety are one of Keir’s preferred deliverers of Asbestos Awareness training within the Keir Southern Region.
I have used them on three projects and found them to be very prompt, diligent and great at delivering what is a mandatory requirement to any person being set to work under all Health and Safety guidance.
Chris at Award Health & Safety has also been a particular source of reliable knowledge on the changing world of asbestos regulations.
Award have also delivered the asbestos awareness message at less formal events for Keir such as our Spring Reception and SHE seminars to a wider audience of professionals and senior managers.
I have no hesitation in recommending them for any work within this vein.
Lush have been working with Award since 2009 who have helped us to get all our health and safety in order. Chris has been a fantastic help, giving advice when needed, writing our policy, delivering training and updating us on the latest legislation. He is always on the end of the phone to help in a crisis and I wouldn’t hesitate recommending Award to anyone.

Two years ago we first heard of Award H&S when we were looking for a local company to provide training for us, as our current H&S consultants worked out as non cost effective solution.
Chris came along and carried out the training for us and the amount of positive feedback I received from operatives and management was unbelievable. They liked Chris’s teaching manner in the way he made things simple and put things into basic English that everyone understood.
Our relationship has now got stronger and stronger and we now consider Award as an extension of our own company, and long may it continue!
