Asbestos industry elects exec

20 June 2012

The UK Asbestos Training Association Ltd’s (UKATA’s) fourth Annual General Meeting at Aston Villa Football Club in June 2012 witnessed the appointment of a new Executive Committee (ExComm), to take the association forward for what promises to be a key year for the Asbestos industry and the Association.

The new 11-strong committee was elected and met for the first time on 18 May and are charged with building on the most successful period in the Association’s history and delivering on its ambitions for future expansion. With ExComm members drawn from industry, and now more reflective of the membership profile, the new Committee is in a position to build on the 40% increase in member numbers during 2011-12.

The new ExComm is drawn from many diverse areas of the Asbestos Industry, providing the Association with a broad range of experience and opinions. Members include David Nichol of Nichol Associates, Alan Willoughby of Coal Consultants and Professor Roger Willey from ACS Physical Risk Control, along with industry stakeholders. The committee is headed up by Chairman Mike Smith of Cape Industrial Services.

“It’s is clear we have the right mix of industry experience and talent to reinforce UKATA’s role as the authoritative source of advice when it comes to asbestos training in the UK,” said UKATA Chairman Mike Smith. “We are already working hard to promote best practice and the new committee is committed to ensuring that UKATA continues to be a powerful voice for its members by taking the lead on key asbestos training initiatives.”

Together with the announcement of the new ExComm, the Association’s annual AGM also heard an address from the Chairman and a speech from Dr Martin Gibson from the Health and Safety Executive indicating that forthcoming legislation is likely to mean that demand for UKATA’s services will only increase in the year ahead.

UKATA members include both large and small, commercial and non-commercial training providers and the Associations objectives going forward are to continue to grow while servicing the diverse needs of its members and their aspirations for the future of asbestos training.
