David Ternent, Health & Safety Manager Commented:

We are delighted to receive this accolade from UKATA, having recently become an accredited UKATA Training Centre we have demonstrated our commitment to our workforce and clients. Our new initiative ‘Asbestos Grab bags’ is yet another demonstration of our on-going commitment.

The awards ceremony which marked the 15-year anniversary of UKATA, saw over 100 attendees celebrate success and unite to raise vital funds for the Mavis Nye Foundation, a charity dedicated to providing relief of financial hardship, and helping the advancement of laboratory and clinical research in the UK for the treatment of mesothelioma.

Craig Evans, Chief Operating Officer of UKATA said:

I would like to congratulate Gelder Group on being Highly Commended in Workforce Development Award category, the judging panel had a huge task in shortlisting the finalists and selecting the winners due to the number of high calibre of applications.  This achievement recognises the achievements of Gelder Group and its workforce, who strive to protect workers and the public from the risks associated with asbestos exposure. Being presented with the Highly Commended certificate in Workforce Development Award, is a testament to the ongoing success of Gelder Group, and I have every confidence that they will continue their path of achievement.

The awards evening was a wonderful opportunity to celebrate success with UKATA members and associates, and having Kriss warm up the audience was one of the many highlights.
