AHCA is live!

AHCA opening night

After months of behind the scenes activities the Asbestos & Hazardous Materials Consultants Association (AHCA) is finally out there! Now it is up to you to join and get involved!

A big thank you from the Executive Committee to SafeWork NSW and Jason Wall for being our first presenter, providing an informative look at what SafeWork NSW expect around reporting on Asbestos in Soil in NSW. Please refer to the Summary and Video below.

In addition, the Executive Committee would like to extend our thanks to Lend Lease for providing an excellent venue to launch a new association.

As mentioned in earlier posts via our LinkedIn company page, 105 attendees made it out on a cold Tuesday night, which is a phenomenal result taking into consideration any advertising was via word of mouth and LinkedIn. We hope this a testament to the need for such an association within our industry and the community at large.

3M, AECOM, Aurecon, Ausgrid, Coffey, EDP Consultants, EHO Consulting, EI Australia, Envirolab, Enviropacific, EP Risk Management Pty Ltd, GreenCap, GreenPlus Property Services, Hibbs & Associates Pty Ltd, Hygiene Risk Australia, Industrial Health Matters, Integrated environmental, ITGA, JMB, Jim’s Building Inspections Wyong, Lend Lease, NATA, Practical Environment Solutions, Prensa, Progressive Risk Management, Property Risk Australia, Ramboll, Rare environmental, RiskTech, Safe Environments, Safe Work and Environments, SafeWork NSW, Southern Asbestos Consultancy, Sydney Trains and WSP Australia we thank you all for your commitment!
