The 40-strong business is expanding its team with the appointment of Major Projects, Fire and Compliance Chief Operating Officer Neil Triggs, Fire Compliance Services Divisional Lead Michael Shone, Health & Safety Divisional Lead Naveed Mohammed, Senior Director Land Remediation Andrew Ford and the promotion of Fiona Lindsay to Operations Director.

With a decade working in the public and private sectors specialising in asbestos surveys and removal, fire safety, health and safety compliance and land remediation, Inspectas has recently moved to new premises in Drighlington, doubling its office space to allow further team and departmental growth.

Neil Triggs, newly appointed Chief Operating Officer for Major Projects, Fire and Compliance said:

Legal compliance around fire safety is becoming increasingly complex particularly following the Grenfell tragedy. My role, supported by our new Fire Compliance Divisional Lead Michael Shone, is to develop our fire safety division and lead our team of fire safety consultants and surveyors to demystify the property compliance process for all businesses and take the worry out of navigating the regulations.

Naveed Mohammed joins as Health and Safety Divisional Lead following 23 years of experience in construction consultancy, Construction Design & Management (CDM) regulations and asbestos, while Senior Director of Land Remediation Andrew Ford specialises in the remediation of invasive weeds alongside land clearance and preparation.

Fiona’s promotion to Operations Director follows eight years with the company and 15 years of experience within the asbestos industry.

Inspectas was formed in 2013 by asbestos management professionals Craig Candlish and Matthew Fahy who felt the industry had become slow moving and had a reputation for being unreliable. In a bid to become a transformational force in the sector, they combined their expertise to launch Inspectas Compliance and today have a portfolio of more than 150 clients in the education, healthcare, retail, construction and industrial sectors.

Director Craig Candlish added:

After a decade specialising in raising asbestos compliance and management standards across the UK, our move into our Drighlington premises and the appointment of Neil, Michael, Naveed and Andrew, alongside Fiona’s promotion, reflects our commitment to developing our services even further with an additional focus on fire safety, health and safety and land remediation across multiple sectors.

In this, our 10th anniversary year, we are delighted to continue our strategy of bringing the very best property and land compliance practitioners into the Inspectas family and increasing our capacity to deliver trusted expertise in areas of significant concern for businesses.
