Technical and Quality Director for ACE Consultants
Ben has been involved with asbestos throughout a varied career. Week one with Inspectorate Casella in 1993 was a Preliminary Certificate in Asbestos Fibres from Bill Sanderson. After 10 years in London: Air Testing, Bulk Analysis, Surveying, Project Managing, Training and setting up new UKAS Laboratories, it was time to escape to the country: new disciplines, new clients; same challenges.
A sojourn on the other side with senior positions for an environmental software business, a national Licensed Asbestos Removal Contractor and then a H&S Directorship for a large multidiscipline contracting business before a return to consultancy.
Those same principles learnt in that first week of training have not changed: a commitment to quality, continuous learning, betterment and ensuring the safety of persons that may be placed at risk.
