ACAD and FAAM Announce New Skill Card for the Asbestos Industry

ACAD, FAAM (Faculty of Asbestos Assessment and Management) and NORAC (National Organisation of Asbestos Consultants) have formed a collaboration to bring a new skills certification card, displaying the CSCS logo, to Asbestos professionals.

ACAD Manager, Graham Warren said: “ACAD launched the Asbestos industries first CSCS affiliate card scheme back in 2017. This enrichment of the Skill Card for analysts and surveyors marks an exciting new collaboration between ACAD, FAAM and NORAC and one I am sure we will all look to build upon into the future.”

FAAM Board Member Colette Willoughby said: “Our collaboration is the start of an exciting new era which we believe will be beneficial to all of our members. Our new partnership has bought together two sides of the Asbestos industry and we look forward to working together towards our ultimate goal of improving worker health protection.”

NORAC Board Member Jonathan Grant said: “We are delighted to be working in collaboration with FAAM and ACAD issuing a card displaying the CSCS logo to support asbestos surveyors and analysts gain access to numerous construction sites. This spirit of cooperation is a fundamental part of NORAC’s objective to promote excellence in the asbestos profession.”

CSCS Director of Operations Gordon Jenkins said: “It’s great to see ACAD, BOHS and FAAM working together bringing asbestos analysts, surveyors and removal professionals together. The new Skill Card fully meets the requirements of the CLC and is approved to display the CSCS logo. The CSCS logo displayed on the card will provide the industry with confidence that the card holder has achieved the recognised standards of training and qualification for their asbestos occupation.”
