Analysts go through Full Decontamination with ATaC

Over the last few weeks a number of analysts have undertaken full decontamination while on the RSPH qualification with ATaC.

Two months ago, the Asbestos Testing and Consultancy Association (ATaC) announced that they would deliver full decontamination on the RSPH Level 3 Award in Asbestos Air Monitoring and Clearance Procedures qualification. This was after the publication of the finding of the ‘Asbestos Analysts Inspection Programme 2014/15’ commissioned by the HSE (Health and Safety Executive), which highlighted that some analysts’ decontamination procedures were poor.

“It was very encouraging to see how quickly ATaC supported the industry following the report findings,” stated Jonathan Francis, Managing Director of Riverside Environmental. “Through ATaC, analytical companies can now be confident that their staff receive thorough training on the decontamination procedures, using a live decontamination unit.”

ATaC offers the full range of RSPH asbestos qualifications, which are independently regulated by Ofqual. Full details are available online.
