Awards success for asbestos consultancy

A team that protects people from the dangers of asbestos is in the running to pick up its third award of the year at one of Birmingham’s most prestigious awards ceremonies.

Acorn Analytical Services, which has bases in Birmingham, Northampton and London, has been named a finalist in the Excellence in People Development award at the Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce annual awards.

The company learned it had been shortlisted for the prestigious title just days after winning a Silver award in the Business Innovation category of the Northamptonshire SME Business Awards.

Earlier in the year it also won the coveted Asbestos Consultancy Award at the Tomorrow’s Health and Safety Awards 2021 for its commitment to making workplaces across the UK safer.

Company director Neil Munro said: “It means a great deal to us to have made it through to the finals of the Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce awards because they are so highly respected.

“We’re particularly proud to have been shortlisted for their Excellence in People Development award because we invest thousands of pounds into developing our staff and into training the next generation of asbestos consultants so that we can continue to protect people from the dangers of asbestos.

“To receive such recognition in the same year that we’ve also won the Asbestos Consultancy Award and the Business Innovation Silver award at the Northamptonshire SME Business Awards speaks volumes about the professionalism and dedication of our team.”

The company received the Silver award at the Northamptonshire SME Business Awards because the judges were impressed by the innovative ways it educates people about the dangers of asbestos, asbestos regulations and what people need to do to comply with the law. This includes the firm’s regular Asbestos Knowledge Empire podcasts, video brochures and their number one best-selling book, Asbestos The Dark Arts.

The winners of the Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce awards will be revealed during an online awards ceremony on Tuesday, July 27.
