Meet The Trainer

Steve Bainbridge

I have been involved with training for nearly 40 years. For the last 20 years this has been in health and safety and since the advent of effective asbestos legislation in 2002 in the field of Asbestos in particular. I am a qualified Asbestos Surveyor holding the P402 BIOH (British Occupational Hygiene) qualification. I also have qualifications and have been trained in IOSH (Institute of Occupational Safety and Health) risk management and CDM (Construction Design and Management) regulations 2015. This breadth of knowledge assists me in planning courses to meet my client's needs. However I do not attempt to train except in my own specialist area of knowledge.

In the past 20 years I have delivered training to organisations as varied as corporate and government bodies both large and small with groups of up to 70 people.

I believe that training has to be kept interesting. Although it is delivered by power point presentation the course involves well managed delegate participation.

HSE have a range of useful resources particularly some short videos. However what is most important is not how much you cram into a training course but how much your delegates remember afterwards. Training has to be relevant to be effective.

Bainbridge Asbestos is a member of both the United Kingdom Asbestos Training Association (UKATA) and the Independent Asbestos Training Providers (IATP) both are organisations dedicate to excellence in asbestos training.
