Congratulations to Gully Howard Technical CEO, Jonathan Grant for not only contributing to FAAM as a board member since it was established in October 2016, Jonathan is now an elected council member for BOHS.
For the last 13 years he has been the Chief Executive of Gully Howard Technical Ltd, responsible for all aspects of strategic leadership and heading our board of directors. As Gully Howard Technical is UKAS accredited to ISO 17020 and ISO 17025 for asbestos surveying, bulk analysis and air testing Jonathan has to keep up to date with all developments within the asbestos profession.
Jonathan’s experience with asbestos dates back to 1995 when he began work with Hampshire County Council’s scientific service. Jonathan was involved in all aspects of asbestos consultancy including bulk sample analysis, surveying, air testing, advising on legislation and the management of contractors. In 1996 he passed the asbestos P-Cert (now W504) and in 1999 passes the Certificate of Competence in asbestos. During this time he also completed an MSc in Environmental Management.
In 2003 Jonathan began work with the University of Portsmouth as a Senior Lecturer where his main role was to develop course material and deliver the BOHS asbestos short courses and tutor MSc students through all phases of the Occupational and Environmental, Health & Safety Management Degree.
