Nick Garland


I am the founder and designer of the Assure360 system (making competence, exposure monitoring and training easy). Assure360 is the must have app for licensed asbestos removal contractors, asbestos managers and trainers. Assure360 is the only system that tracks competence at the individual staff level, and the only one to offer industry benchmarking.

Drawing on over 20 years’ experience, I provide health and safety management advice, asbestos audit, expert witness testimony, competence and compliance systems to the asbestos and construction industry. My company, Assure Risk Management, serves large and small clients, who value our expertise combined with professionalism and integrity.

I hold a PgC in health, safety and environmental management from Portsmouth University, and have completed NEBOSH H&S qualifications as well as numerous professional project management courses.

Competence Schemes – The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

The seminar will outline what competence means within the asbestos industry and why we should care (including the regulatory imperative). It will cover the various ways to observe and measure it, the pitfalls and the benefits that can be gained from a well-designed system. The seminar will close with a short demonstration on the Assure360 competence system.
