New skill card for the asbestos sector launches
The Faculty of Asbestos Assessment and Management (FAAM), Asbestos Control and Abatement Division (ACAD) and The National Organisation of Asbestos Consultants (NORAC) have formed a collaboration to bring a new skills certification card, displaying the CSCS logo, to Asbestos professionals.
The project brings together organisations representing consultancies, Licenced Contractors and Asbestos professionals for the first time.
FAAM board member Colette Willoughby said, “Our collaboration is the start of an exciting new era which we believe will be beneficial to all of our members. Our new partnership has bought together two sides of the Asbestos industry and we look forward to working together towards our ultimate goal of improving worker health protection.”
CSCS director of operations Gordon Jenkins added, “It’s great to see ACAD, BOHS and FAAM working together bringing asbestos analysts, surveyors and removal professionals together.
The new Skill Card fully meets the requirements of the CLC and is approved to display the CSCS logo. The CSCS logo displayed on the card will provide the industry with confidence that the card holder has achieved the recognised standards of training and qualification for their asbestos occupation. Card holders also receive a virtual card that goes on their smartphone.”
