Over 25 years Asbestos Removal Industry Experience

About us

Asbestos & You provides foundation training for those entering the asbestos industry, professional development to those already in it, and general awareness for anyone who may need to deal with asbestos on a work site or at home.

We have an ethos of saving lives

In short, asbestos diseases are preventable.

Training is paramount to being able to correctly identify, handle, remove and manage asbestos on site. It provides a platform for a safe working environment – for everyone.

Asbestos & You is unique. We only deliver and specialise in asbestos training – providing asbestos awareness and removal courses. This includes nationally accredited Vocational Education Training (VET) compliant with New Zealand and Australian competency standards – mandatory requirements for asbestos removal, and licensing.

Our trainers share their industry knowledge with you by providing practical guidance, and personalised instruction.

John Carter, the founder of Asbestos and You, has decades of experience as the managing director of his own asbestos management company, is a past president of an Asbestos Disease Society, and is a previous board member of the Bernie Banton Foundation, among other industry accolades.

Asbestos Training Session Presentation

Asbestos & You was founded originally under a division of Carter Corporation – a dynamic and responsive company providing quality Asbestos Management and Consultancy services to the public and private sector across New Zealand and Australia.

This company was founded by John Carter in 1983 and initially provided building consultancy and project management services.

Since 1991, Carter Corporation evolved into an asbestos management business coinciding with a significant improvement in asbestos regulations during that time, brought about by the increasing need to safely manage asbestos.

The Asbestos & You banner has grown from humble beginnings, until today, where it is a fully fledged independent training company in its own right.
