Hawkins successfully completed their application and have obtained a ‘new full three year license’ (Nov 2019 – Nov 2022) to remove and work with licensed asbestos materials, as granted by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE).
The previous application process was based on an interview directly with two local/known HSE Inspectors (face to face) reviewing the company’s performance, knowledge & records of evidence held.
The HSE have trialled a new application system from April 2019, where it differs significantly, as all evidence of the licensed contractors knowledge/performance is uploaded to a database and then examined by an HSE Inspector from the Asbestos Licensing Unit (ALU) of whom is not familiar with the company or its face to face history.
Dean Hawkins, Managing Director commented “it’s a very comprehensive application process and I am proud to announce that we have been granted a new full three year license.
As always, it is a huge team effort to keep our level of service & expertise intact and for that I thank my staff and onsite Supervisors & Operatives for all of their efforts”.
