Using today’s SMART IT and QR technology to improve asbestos management, save time, money, and lives while driving cultural change

As Co-Founder and Chair of the Metro Safety Group and more recently of UKNAR CIC (UK National Asbestos Register, Community Interest Company) helping others to protect people and property has been my career for the last 30 years. My recent passion is to see how we can manage asbestos much more safely given that it still exists in over 1.5 million workplaces and homes in the UK and probably kills over 100 people per week in the UK.

No more dumping steel into landfills! PMC has a unique process to recycle hazardous steel into a clean raw material; Purified Metal Blocks

Worldwide, millions of tons of contaminated steel scrap are released every year, from buildings, trains, ships and industrial installations, to cite a few. For example, the steel is contaminated with asbestos and/or Chromium 6. Cleaning contaminated steel scrap for reuse is difficult and costly. If the steel cannot be cleaned, it will be dumped in landfills and a valuable raw material will be lost. This can be done differently from now on! PMC recycles steel in a sustainable and cost-efficient way.
