Asbestos assessors have to work with a number of different skills, including managing projects and planning for assessment processes. Assessors also need the ability to collect data on-site using measurement devices to keep track of how things are going during any project.

Assessors should be knowledgeable in completing the monitoring process as well as to evaluate the results of the monitoring process according to accredited laboratory requirements. These are necessary to know what information is needed before getting started on an asbestos removal project.

We can provide training on request.  Contact us for more information.
