Asbestos The Truth Returns, With A New Direction.

25th February 2020

Lucion Services are proud to announce that the Asbestos: The Truth Conference will be returning to you on the 8th October 2020, hosted by the University of London at their world-renowned events venue Senate House.

This year marks the tenth anniversary of the Asbestos The Truth Conference. Asbestos Risk Management Consultants, National Asbestos Contract Managers, and Lucion Services Directors will be enabling delegates with the tools to implement an effective and impactful asbestos management system. Based on feedback from previous conferences, we have changed our conference direction, moving away from exploring the reasons why duty holders should manage their asbestos risks, this year the conference will focus on not only how to manage asbestos but how to give your asbestos management activities impact through implementing best practices. 

As environmental health in public buildings becomes more prevalent in the public eye, we are providing opportunities to access one to one advice with Lucion’s expert asbestos consultants. In addition, the conference will allow you to network with like-minded professionals as well as attend an optional Duty To Manage CPD training course hosted by award-winning training providers Lucion Consulting.

Included in your ticket:

  • Main theatre room attendance during the morning and afternoon sessions
  • A choice of either 
    • 2 x break-out session case study topics (4 topics to choose from), or
