A team that protects people from the dangers of asbestos has added another title to its ever-growing collection of awards.
Acorn Analytical Services, which has bases in Northampton, Birmingham and London, won an award at the latest Northamptonshire SME Business Awards and a few days later it learned it was also a finalist in the Excellence in People Development award at the Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce annual awards.
If it wins in Birmingham, it will be the third award win for the firm this year, as it has already 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: “We were thrilled to receive the Silver award in the Business Innovation category of the Northamptonshire SME Business Awards because it recognises organisations which are working in smarter and better ways to make a positive difference to their clients.
“The judges were impressed by the innovative ways we educate people about the dangers of asbestos, asbestos regulations and what people need to do to comply with the law, including our regular Asbestos Knowledge Empire podcasts, video brochures and our number one best-selling book, Asbestos The Dark Arts.
“Fantastically, the news of our award win had only just begun to sink when we found out we’d made it through to the finals of the Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce annual awards.
“We’re very 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.
“To receive such recognition in the same year we’ve also won the Asbestos Consultancy Award speaks volumes about the professionalism and dedication of our team.”
The winners of the Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce awards will be revealed during an online awards ceremony on Tuesday, July 27.
