The MacDonald Burlington Hotel in Birmingham will provide the backdrop for this year’s one day ‘Asbestos the Truth 2012′ conference scheduled for Thursday, 8th November 2012 from 9am to 5pm. The aim of the conference is to provide up to date information on asbestos legislation, training, management and awareness.

The UK Asbestos Training Association (UKATA) is one of the sponsors and will use the opportunity to express the continued dangers of asbestos and the importance of training when it comes to a material that remains the biggest cause of work related deaths in the UK.

The morning session of the conference includes a series of presentations on asbestos use and then attendees will splits into two groups for the afternoon session. Group 1 will be given an introduction to the danger and management of asbestos, while Group 2 will receive an industry and knowledge update tailored for industry insiders and those with a duty to manage asbestos.

UKATA’s Technical and Operations Manager Terry Barker stated that “The event targets those who require asbestos awareness training or who have a responsibility to manage asbestos in their working role. UKATA will be delivering what for some is an inconvenient truth – that asbestos remains a big killer in the workplace and that training is essential to ensure the safety of employees and public alike when coming into contact with this deadly substance.”
