Asbestos The Truth returns for 2017 conference!


29th June 2017

Hi_res0058 (1)Organised by Lucion Services, the Asbestos the Truth conference – now in its eighth year and taking place on 8th 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 in to 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.

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

Tickets go on sale from 8am on the 3rd July and can be purchased at www.asbestosthetruth.com at an early bird rate of £95+vat.

Details of sponsorship and exhibitor packages for the Asbestos the Truth Conference are available together with tickets at www.asbestosthetruth.com. Alternatively contact sales@asbestosthetruth.com or tel. 0191 461 8999.
