UKNAR CIC has marked its first anniversary during lockdown 3.0 with renewed will to help protect dutyholders and contractors from the potential risks of asbestos disturbance - whether in public spaces such as schools, or the increasing number of unoccupied premises resulting from the pandemic.
We are taking our key learnings from 2020 and setting our sights on 1000 schools adopting Asbestos SMART in 2021. This is still only about 5% of UK schools that contain asbestos but will better protect hundreds of thousands of pupils, staff and contractors.
We are delighted to announce that UKNAR will be taking part in the upcoming Contam Digital Spotlight ‘Innovation in Asbestos Management’ on the 18th February at 2:40 pm, GMT. - Register free

Following the announcement of UKNAR CIC’s partnership with Mesothelioma UK in the last edition, we are delighted to announce that over 50 schools are now going to be trialling UKNAR’s Asbestos SMART system from September.
