Acorn launches free asbestos advice surgery

Acorn Jan 2020 Low Res-166

When we say we’re committed to eradicating people’s asbestos problems we mean it! Which is why we’re excited to launch our asbestos advice surgery!

In our day-to-day work we provide businesses with innovative asbestos management services which reduce their risk of asbestos exposure, prosecution and fines.

We know that for many people asbestos feels like a minefield and can be a painful process to try to implement themselves, so we’ve also produced the UK’s only fully documented and systemised asbestos management process – the Acorn Asbestos Antidote. This five-stage process takes firms from non-compliance with the law through to being fully in line with all the Government’s rules, regulations and laws relating to asbestos. Once firms have completed this with us, they no longer need to worry about asbestos management, their staff being at risk or what to do when they get visits from Health and Safety inspectors.

In short, we provide a comprehensive range of asbestos services – delivered by an experienced, qualified team of asbestos experts – that take away firms’ asbestos headache. However, at Acorn we are so passionate about protecting people from the dangers of asbestos that we go even further than this.

We support numerous charities that support people suffering from asbestos-related diseases and we provide FREE asbestos awareness advice through our regular podcasts and blogs.

What is the asbestos advice surgery?

Now, we’re making it even easier for people to access free asbestos information. We have launched a FREE Asbestos Review Surgery offering firms a 30-minute video call with our Asbestos Expert Ian Stone. Ian (pictured) has written best-selling books on asbestos, is one of our regular podcast hosts and is a director here at Acorn Analytical Services.

He is offering his time to firms for free because we know that it can be difficult for them to access asbestos experts. We also realise that businesses can be fearful about asking for help and advice when it comes to asbestos – not least because they worry about how much that initial advice is going to cost them.

We don’t want anyone to go without vital advice that they need to keep themselves and their staff safe and their businesses free from prosecution because they are worried about the cost of that advice. By offering a free 30-minute asbestos advice surgery to businesses we want to eliminate the cost barrier that prevents many from getting the help they so desperately need.

Asbestos advice surgeries are designed to help businesses find out if they’re 100% compliant with asbestos regulations and laws. They give company bosses and managers the opportunity to discuss and diagnose their current asbestos compliance status and to ask any questions about asbestos that have been keeping them awake at night.
