The organisation was founded in May 2020. Following being furloughed from my position due to the 2020 coronavirus pandemic and after a period of reflection on my last 13 years within the asbestos industry beginning as a trainee operative progressing through the ranks to become an operative, supervisor, site manager, contracts supervisor, UKATA asbestos awareness trainer, contracts manager, asbestos surveyor and most recently to a senior contracts manager.
After my 13 years of professional service to both local and national asbestos companies and the experiences and client based relationships built and gained during this time, I believe that the time is now right for me to form my own organisation and continue to provide the professionalism and service that my current and previous clients have come to know and respect.
The organisation although still quite new has quickly become a very popular choice in the North West, with the company ethos being all about a continued professional service with a cradle to grave project life cycle approach to ensure my clients feel safe within my expertise and guidance and to ensure that they are fully compliant and are fully aware of their duties as an employer or employee in line with current regulations
and industry guidance.
If you require any of my current services or require my technical assistance now or in the future, then please just

What is Asbestos?
Asbestos is a term for a group of minerals made of microscopic fibres. Before its dangers were known, asbestos was often used in buildings for insulation, flooring and roofing and sprayed on ceilings and walls.
It is now banned in the United Kingdom. Buildings constructed before the year 2000 may still have asbestos in them. If the asbestos-containing materials inside these buildings remain intact, they pose very minimum risk.
It is only when these materials are damaged or disturbed that tiny asbestos fibres can be released into the air and breathed into your lungs.
The symptoms of asbestos-related disease take many years – even decades – to appear after the original exposure to asbestos, so exposure a long time ago might only be showing up as a disease today.
There are 4 main diseases associated with the inhalation of asbestos fibres:-
• Asbestos related lung cancer
• Mesothelioma - a form of cancer mainly affecting the lining of the lungs.
• Non-malignant pleural disease (diffuse pleural thickening and pleural plaques)
• Asbestosis - a non-malignant scarring of the lung tissue
Who is most at risk?
If you work with Asbestos you are at higher risk of damage to your lungs if you’ve been exposed to asbestos for a long time at work. People at higher risk are those who have worked as:
If you have worked in ship building, railway engineering and factories that made asbestos products, you also have a higher risk, You might also be at risk if you have lived with a worker who was exposed to asbestos.
