Having the right equipment, in full working order with current test documentation, is an essential part of ensuring the health & safety of any workforce.
We support a wide range of equipment for working at height, confined spaces including breathing apparatus and other PPE.
We are also MHRA registered suppliers of medical oxygen.
3 Dedicated Testing Centres
We have maintenance teams in Staffordshire, Warrington and London, with engineers and technicians who have been formally trained to the highest standards by us and the equipment manufacturers.
We can calibrate, service & repair most products on site.
It is vital that equipment is tested and maintained to ensure that it complies with legislation and regulations (PPE regulations 2002).
If you own work equipment that is used to protect your employees from a fall from height, you have a legal duty to ensure that it is inspected at suitable intervals (Regulation 12 (3) of the Work at Height Regulations 2005).
Any equipment that is used to suspend a person (Industrial Rope Access equipment or rescue equipment) is required to have a “thorough examination” under Regulation 9 of the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998.
The inspection must be undertaken by a competent person, who has the relevant knowledge and experience in the subject. This person should be financially independent to enable an inspection to take place based solely on the safety of an item and unaffected by cost.
All our inspectors undertake rigorous training and regular audits. As an independent equipment supplier and trainer our Inspectors have access to a wide range of branded equipment and they learn how it operates in our Training Centre. As suppliers, Arco Professional Safety Services Ltd is kept directly informed of manufacturer recalls, etc of which Inspectors are also kept aware. In addition they receive manufacturer’s training, in-house training and bespoke LEEA training to inspect lifting accessories. All Inspectors carry cards to prove competence to our clients. As extra reassurance, our Inspectors have full technical support from both our Instructors and Technical Team to ensure we provide our clients with the very best of service.
