- Minimise exposures to airborne respirable asbestos fibres for workers and the general public

- Establish, develop and maintain standards of competence in asbestos management and abatement for those who are members of FAMANZ
- Act as the guardian of professional standards and ethics in the profession of asbestos assessment, management and abatement.
As a Licensed Asbestos Assessor with a wealth of knowledge and experience in identifying, managing and removing asbestos containing materials (ACMs), Rob looks forward to helping to advance industry knowledge and understanding of, and improve standards around, asbestos assessment, management and remediation in New Zealand.
Maynard Marks Director, Stuart Wilson, said:
“We congratulate Robert on this appointment, which is a testament to his standing in the industry as a recognised expert in the field asbestos consultancy.
