The Independent Asbestos Training Providers (IATP) is the UK’s only independently audited body of asbestos training providers. The IATP is run for its members by its members. All IATP members undergo a strict independent auditing process to ensure that the training delivered is up to standard.
Asbestos kills over 4,500 people per year in the UK. The IATP and its members are committed to raising awareness of the dangers of asbestos. As the only not for profit training organisation the IATP is also passionate about giving back to those who have been affected by asbestos by holding various charity events.
The IATP work closely with the trade unions, H&S organisations, the HSE, campaigners and charities to promote a safer working environment. The IATP recently completed a project with Asbestos in Schools and JUAC to ensure that teachers were aware of the dangers of asbestos.
