Huge congratulations are due again to Chris Dobson, our Group Health, Safety & Quality Manager, for satisfying all the criteria and interview requirements of the Asbestos Removal Management Institute – ARMI. Chris was accepted as a Member of ARMI on 20th January 2017, following his interview held at Hemel Hempstead on 18th January.
To add to Chris’ membership of the Institute of Demolition Engineers, Institution of Occupational Safety & Health, and Chartered Quality Institute, Chris can now add the letters MARMI to his extensive credentials.
John Thompson, Joint Managing Director of Thompsons of Prudhoe, said of Chris on hearing the news:
“I am very pleased for Chris, and his enrolment as a Member of ARMI is totally deserved – but no surprise because he is a very talented person. He has kept on top of the daily demands of his operational role at Thompsons whilst making the time to study for professional exams to add to his qualifications. This reflects Chris’ ability to get things done in his usual calm and efficient way. The Asbestos Removal Management Institute is enhanced with Members of Chris’ ability.”
In order to achieve MARMI status, a person must have an approved asbestos competency qualification as well as a leadership or management-related qualification at, or equivalent to, NVQ Level 4, and pass an interview to demonstrate not only their detailed knowledge of asbestos removal, but also their commitment to professionalism in the industry.
As at 30th January 2017, there are 11 Fellows, 19 Members and 3 Affiliates of ARMI.
