Greencap has recently conducted some pro bono Asbestos Awareness Training for Aboriginal Employees of NSW Councils in Grafton and Parramatta.
Jason Green, Regional Practice Manager – Occupational Hygiene, Greencap presented in conjunction with Amy Lovesey, Project Manager – Asbestos Policy, Local Government NSW and Steve Cochrane, Manager Aboriginal Stakeholder Engagement and Aboriginal Programs, SafeWork NSW.
Jason has spent 23 years of his work life as an Occupational Hygiene Consultant. During this time he has gained experience specifically around hazardous materials, chemical exposure, indoor air quality and mould, noise, workplace health and safety (WHS) and environmental consulting on a wide range of industrial, commercial and residential projects. Jason is a SafeWork NSW licensed asbestos assessor and has undertaken several hundred investigations, surveys and risk assessments relating to asbestos-containing materials, hazardous materials as well as other chemical, physical and biological hazards.
All the council staff who responded found the training to be ‘excellent’ or ‘good’ when asked about relevance to their role, quality of delivery, meeting or exceeding their expectations, session structure and workshop content.
Some comments from the participants:
“Speakers very well informed and delivered information very well. Covered topics relevant to our work”
