Many Thanks. Jason Bunn Asbestos Manager University of Warwick testimonials The trainers were all extremely professional in their approach and talked through working examples with engineers whilst still following the agreed and prescribed syllabus. The feedback from all of the engineers was positive and their individual knowledge was tested at the end of each session. Thanks to Environmental Essentials we now have a team of skilled engineers that are aware of not only the hazards associated with asbestos but perhaps more importantly how to recognise asbestos and what action to take from then on. I would like to thank Environmental Essentials for their support and look forward to working with them in the future.
