AEC Wins Innovation award

On Friday 6th July AEC we're announced the winners of the Innovation award at the UKATA Excellence Awards 2018.

The evening was held in celebration of the Association’s 10th anniversary, and companies and individuals were encouraged to enter into the awards to showcase who has made an impact on UKATA and the wider asbestos industry.

AEC entered Hazard House into the Innovation category to be recognised for revolutionising the way in which delegates learn about asbestos and Legionella. The new training facility allows delegates to interact with mock asbestos installations and Legionella hazards in situ within a realistically sized and constructed building.

Bob Harris, Technical Director of AEC said: ‘Delivering training that is informative, meets our clients training outcomes, as well as being enjoyable, is not easy. It takes a great deal of effort to keep it relevant to our delegates and that constant evolution in training delivery does rely heavily on innovation on the part of training providers like AEC. 

Hazard House is revolutionary in our industry and is part of our continuing efforts to make our training delivery more and more effective.

It is always special when somebody recognises your hard work, but when that recognition comes from your fellow asbestos training providers then it is extra special, and we really appreciate UKATA giving us the innovation award and especially the judges' comments…WOW!!’


Chief Operations Officer of UKATA Craig Evans said, "The judges reported a high standard of entries in this category, it was a great pleasure to present AEC with this Excellence Award which recognises the innovations implemented by a UKATA member”.
