Celebrate Your Unique Talent

_WP_6441.jpg

Did you know every year November 24th is observed as Celebrate Your Unique Talent Day?

No matter how unique or different your talent is, today is the day that you are encouraged to share it with others.

Here at Acorn we aren’t shy about our talent. We are the leading experts when it comes to managing asbestos safely and we are proud to show off our know-how and talent far and wide.

There are many asbestos consultants across the country so you might wonder what it is that sets us apart from the rest. Quite simply our unique talent lies in the approach we take – we are the only consultancy that offers clients a full Antidote to their asbestos problems. We do this through our Acorn Asbestos Antidote Official Guidebook which is the UK’s only documented and fully systemised management process.

We created the Acorn Asbestos Antidote to take away the pain of asbestos from our clients. We know our clients are busy people. They have their day-to-day operations to manage and don’t want the hassle of dealing with all the regulations, red tape and worry that come with managing with asbestos. The problem is if they don’t deal with their asbestos correctly they could be putting themselves and others at risk, face huge fines running into hundreds of thousands of pounds and even imprisonment.

This is where the Acorn Asbestos Antidote comes in. This straight-forward guide takes our clients through an A to Z process from non-compliance through to full asbestos compliance so they are fully in line with the Government rules, regulations and laws. After completing the Antidote’s five stage process, businesses no longer have to worry about their asbestos management or what to do when they get visits from the Health and Safety inspector.

It is not a box-ticking exercise – there is lots of work to be completed but the good news is that we do the majority of that work. All we need from clients is their valuable input to gather information, agree a process and then assist us when we roll the completed asbestos management process out to their staff. As a result, our clients can take back control of their day-to-day work and get on with their business knowing that asbestos is no longer an issue for them.

It’s fantastic to know that our talent makes such a huge difference to people’s lives.

Our talented team includes managers with more than 85 years’ combined experience in delivering accredited services. To find out more about our Acorn Asbestos Antidote and to order the Official Guidebook visit www.acorn-as.com/acorn-asbestos-antidote or call 0844 818 0895.
