Caerphilly County Borough Council is thrilled to announce that it has been shortlisted as a finalist for the 2023 UKATA Excellence Awards. This prestigious recognition highlights Caerphilly County Borough Council’s commitment to excellence and acknowledges its outstanding contributions to the asbestos industry.

The UKATA Excellence Awards were first held in 2018 to commemorate 10 years since inception. This year, as well as bringing together UKATA approved training providers and associates to recognise their achievements within the industry, the event will also celebrate the 15th anniversary of UKATA, a leading authority on asbestos standards and training.

Caerphilly Council has been shortlisted for both the ‘Excellence in Innovation Award’ and ‘Workforce Development Award’.

Cllr Nigel George, the Council’s Cabinet Member for Corporate Services and Property, said “Being shortlisted for the awards is testament to the team’s hard work and dedication.  This is a fantastic achievement and I’d like to congratulate everyone involved.”

The winners will be announced at the UKATA Excellence Awards 2023 taking place on Friday 7th July 2023 with legendary British athlete and TV personality Kriss Akabusi MBE set to host the final. 

Kriss said of the evening: “I am truly honoured to be hosting the UKATA Excellence Awards 2023 event and joining in the celebration of UKATA's remarkable 15-year anniversary. This momentous occasion is a testament to the unwavering commitment and dedication of UKATA in advancing excellence and fostering growth within the construction industry.

I am thrilled to be a part of this prestigious event, where we will recognise and honour the outstanding achievements of individuals and organisations who have made a significant impact in this dynamic field.
Together, let us embrace the spirit of excellence and raise a toast to 15 years of success and innovation!"
