Wayne Bagnall
I worked in the family business in Asbestos Removal and Demolition as a Director of the Bagnall Group Ltd. During my time with the company I continued to develop my personal expertise by various training, writing papers on asbestos and demolition safety issues and delivering presentations around the country at national conferences (IOSH, NFDC, ICE) etc.

In 1999 I set up an independent consultancy, Wayne Bagnall Ltd t/a Wayne Bagnall Consulting, providing specialist safety advice and training in asbestos (UKATA) and demolition safety to private industry and government. I was listed on the HSE "OSHCR" as a registered consultant for many years and considered by my peers to be a leading authority in this field applying practical experience underpinned with a Masters Degree in Construction Health & Safety Management.

I am an active Honorary Fellow of the IDE (Institute of Demolition Engineers) sitting on the IDE National Council of Management; please click here for my CV.
