The Asbestos industry mourns the death of Max Lopacki from NATAS who sadly died on Sunday 11th December 2016.
Max was a very respected figure in the asbestos world as he had been heavily involved in the development of asbestos training for many years.
He was at the forefront of the campaign to get HSE to recognise Asbestos Awareness E-Learning and also led the way when it came to Abestos Awareness training and licensed training.
Max leaves behind a wife, Jo, amd 3 sons Patrick, Michael and Joszef.
He ran his own asbestos training company, Natas, and has taught thousands of people over the years about asbestos.
Many people will have known Max through the IATP, us included. He was an avid supporter of them and of spreading the word about the dangers of asbestos. He would always help in promoting them.
In recent years, Max became heavily involved in the Nuclear sector, and also developed a new company with his son, Patrick, which specialises in 3600 3D laser scanning and imaging.
Max died following an accident in London. His family were with him at his his bedside as he sadly passed away.
The asbestos world will greatly miss his presence as he was such an influential and passionate man.
We send our deepest condolences to Max’s family and friends.
