The team started their challenge on Monday, leaving Rayleigh at 9am, and after 24 hours on an exercise bike in the office, they reached Glasgow!
There were some difficult and painful times but the team – Alannah, Coryn, Geoff, Giulia, Isabelle, James, Louisa, Mark, Sarah B, Sarah H, Satish, Shaun and Steve – were determined to make it to Glasgow!
Congratulations to all members of the team for their fantastic effort to raise funds for Mesothelioma UK, and the Wigan and Leigh Hospice.
Currently six candidates are undertaking the RSPH Level 4 Certificate in Asbestos Laboratory and Project Management qualification with ATaC.
This RSPH qualification is Ofqual regulated and accepted by UKAS as meeting ‘competent person status’ as defined in LAB 30. The qualification is made up of three parts – there are two units; ‘asbestos laboratory management’ and ‘project management for asbestos removal work’, which begin with an ATaC induction day and are assessed by assignments; and following successful completion of both units there is a final professional interview.
ATaC has one candidate who has completed both units and assignments, as well as a professional interview, so is awaiting final verification before being awarded a certificate. All other candidates are in the process of completing unit 1, ‘asbestos laboratory management’.
Information on this RSPH Level 4 qualification can be found here.
ARCA / ATaC staff completed the 5K Colour Obstacle Rush at Uttoxeter Race Course on Saturday, fundraising for Mesothelioma UK and the Wigan and Leigh Hospice as part of the ARCA Charity Week 2018.
After running, jogging and walking the 5K in the hot sun, the team reached the finish line covered in colour … yellow, pink, green, orange, blue… and having tackled space hoppers, climbing nets and foam as well as 17 other obstacles!
‘The Colour Obstacle Rush was great fun! We worked well as a team especially when taking on some of the trickier obstacles. We appreciate the support we have received so far, as all donations can make a difference to the people the charities support,’ commented Louisa Statham, Marketing Assistant at ARCA.
