Along with the HSE, IATP have collaborated with SHP on these awards for 2020. Established in 2010, the IATP are recognised by the HSE, trade bodies, trade unions and industry for continual commitment and development for providing asbestos safety training and promotion of asbestos awareness across the UK.
IATP members are independently and regularly audited and their training materials verified to ensure that their training fully complies with the requirements of regulations.
Members provide asbestos training covering the whole of the UK and beyond. They work closely with industry to ensure best practice and compliance in asbestos knowledge and safe working practices and encourage the development of the safety training industry.
Commenting on the awards, IATP CEO Paul Beaumont said: “The IATP are excited to be sponsoring and supporting the SHP Awards 2020. The efforts of the SHP and organisations similar in role to the IATP is to help encourage, inform and promote best practice, development and commitment to the ongoing safety of those in the workplace and beyond.
“We recognise and respect all of those whose hard work and dedication have brought them to be nominated for an award, but strongly believe that the SHP Awards will help encourage people and organisation to strive toward stronger compliance and to recognise a clear commitment to health and safety in the current times and beyond.”

Words of advice from last year’s Rising Star UK winner Rob Jukes
“When I’m judging the nominations I will be looking for individuals who have clearly demonstrated the right attitude and dedication to succeed. From responding to challenges in the right manner and putting in the hard work and the sacrifice to better themselves and their organisations. I firmly believe the SHP Rising Star awards showcase those who have demonstrated the potential and ability to be great, to become a future leader within the profession.
When you look at past finalists, they have all demonstrated an ability to succeed within their role and have gone further by being involved in various industry schemes and projects. If you then look at the winners, they have demonstrated that they have a clear passion for the profession. That they really care for their employees and have put so much effort and hard work into helping the employees they are responsible for be healthy and safe at work and the organisations to which they belong succeed. For me they are people that inspire me and remind me how great this profession is.”
