2016 marks the 20th anniversary of NATAS. From its roots as the National Asbestos Training & Accreditation Scheme, a campaign to improve asbestos training provision in the UK, in 1996 Max Lopacki commenced trading as the first dedicated asbestos training company in the UK and the first independent asbestos training provider to become recognised by HSE. Initially offering Licensed Asbestos Removal Contractor training, and subsequently Awareness and Non-licensed training, in 2000 NATAS piloted the first P-Module courses such as the P402 & P405 for BOHS.
In 2006 NATAS expanded its range of services and gained UKAS accreditation for asbestos analysis, air testing and surveying, opening it’s first Laboratory in Birmingham and latterly in Aberdeen and Thurso.
Over the years NATAS has worked with major companies in the oil & gas, nuclear, industrial and commercial sectors both nationally and internationally, supporting customers and developing partnerships in countries as far as afield as USA, China, India, Australia and many areas of the European Union.
