Luddon Training backs complimentary asbestos awareness training

02 August 2017

Luddon Training is supporting the annual Train Safe, Work Safe, Keep Safe Campaign from the UK Asbestos Training Association (UKATA), having pledged several hours of free training as part of the campaign designed to keep small businesses and sole traders safe from the UK’s biggest workplace killer – asbestos. Now in its third year, the nationwide campaign runs from 1 September to 31 October, with free asbestos awareness training for those who need it most.

The campaign sees UKATA members pledge hours of free asbestos awareness training and has proved a real success in helping self-employed trades people, DIY enthusiasts and others have access to training they may be unable to afford or not even realise exists. UKATA members pledged over 3,500 hours of free training in 2015 and 2016 with even more complimentary training available this year.

“As a company committed to asbestos training, we are proud to be involved in the UKATA Train Safe, Work Safe, Keep Safe campaign,” said Allan Randall, Director of Luddon Construction Ltd. “We train workers from many large organisations but smaller contractors can still be in the dark over asbestos, so this scheme is a practical way to tackle the lack of asbestos awareness training among these companies.”

Luddon Construction Ltd has been delivering asbestos training in Glasgow since 2015 and having been a member of UKATA since 2015 are keen to support the Train Safe campaign again in 2017.

“I would like to thank Luddon Construction Ltd for backing the 2017 UKATA Train Safe, Work Safe, Keep Safe campaign,” said Craig Evans, General Manager of UKATA. “In the last few years UKATA members have delivered 400,000 asbestos training courses but there remains a real need for essential training for all who may encounter the substance. Thousands of tradespeople have received no asbestos training and Luddon Construction Ltd is playing a key role in helping UKATA with a ‘hands on’ approach to helping them.”
