Asbestos Roadshows, October & November 2017

BOHS, in conjunction with HSE, are holding a series of roadshow events in October and November, to reflect a number of changes and developments in the industry.

The series of roadshow events are key for anyone who wants to find out about BOHS' new Faculty of Asbestos Assessment and Management (FAAM), along with latest developments for the duty to manage, plus the HSE’s Analyst programme.

These events will benefit those companies who work with asbestos, in addition to those with responsibility for managing asbestos risks. The roadshows will also bring analysts up-to-date with developing qualifications, along with the review of the asbestos regulations and the impact on the future.
