UKATA is committed to both maintaining and improving higher standards of asbestos training through ongoing monitoring of UKATA-approved training providers.

UKATA members will receive regular updates from SMAS Worksafe on subjects such as health & safety, environmental and quality management, modern slavery and anti-bribery and corruption whilst SMAS Worksafe members can expect regular information and updates from UKATA around asbestos and asbestos training

Commenting on the new partnership, Craig Evans, UKATA Chief Operating Officer stated “It made absolute sense and we are delighted to partner with SMAS Worksafe. Our collaboration recognises the quality standards of both organisations and aims to assist members and the wider industry alike to demonstrate their commitments to workplace safety”.

Business Development Manager at SMAS Worksafe Trish Meyer said of the partnership, “The aim of this partnership is to raise standards in asbestos across the industry. I look forward to working with the team at UKATA to ensure that our members are kept up to date with all the relevant asbestos information and know how to identify relevant and accredited training.”
