Spreading the Word

Global Environmental has teamed up with removals contractor Clifford Devlin to deliver the Association for Project Safety’s (APS) annual spring CPD seminar roadshows.

Paul Clarke-Scholes and Fergus McCloskey will be delivering sixteen half-day seminars entitled “Latest Techniques in Managing Asbestos” in venues across the UK in the next 3 months.

Topics include:

  • Dangers and risks of asbestos
  • Various forms of disease – latest stats from HSE/IOSH etc
  • Impact of mesothelioma including personal stories
  • The legal implications and dutyholders’ responsibilities
  • Asbestos management plans for refurbishment and maintenance
  • Enforcement and consequences of mismanagement of asbestos including case studies

The offer to present the APS’s annual programme of CPDs follows a successful webinar to APS members which Paul and Fergus jointly delivered in October which covered the commercial context of asbestos management.

“The webinar was a great success,” commented APS’s Membership Services Officer, Rebecca Eunson, “Two hundred and thirty-eight attendees tuned-in which is a record for this type of APS online event and demonstrates that asbestos is still a significant and current issue in construction health and safety.”
