Asbestos the Truth – are we managing the risk?


The Asbestos the Truth conference is the UK’s largest asbestos safety management conference for industry professionals. It will examine current techniques for air sampling and monitoring in the UK and ask whether enough is being done to manage the risk

Organised by Lucion Services, the Asbestos the Truth conference – now in its eighth year and taking place on 8 November in Manchester – will see a keynote presentation by occupational hygiene and asbestos expert Martin Stear.

The former HSE principal specialist inspector will explain how modern air monitoring and analytical techniques can now detect much lower concentrations of asbestos fibre before participating in a panel debate that will tie into the topic of effective monitoring in schools.

Further presentations will also include legal experts discussing in detail the compensation act surrounding exposure cases.

The conference is aimed at connecting industry experts and opinion-formers while offering the chance for people to find out more about changes to legislation and new developments that can improve the management of asbestos in the workplace.

Delegates will be able to attend sector specific workshops this year, which will cover asbestos in soil and contaminated land as well as a series of ‘Ask the Analyst’ workshops to discuss questions pre-submitted by attendees.

The national asbestos market for surveying and air testing work is worth more than £240 million and is expected to increase in line with growing demand for industry expertise and specialised advice.
