The hidden danger. How exposed are you?


Business owners and Health and Safety Managers rely on CE markings to make quick, safe and efficient decisions on Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) selection.

However, they are unknowingly specifying products that fail to offer the expected protection level.

What if you could reduce the hidden risk of non compliant PPE, the risk of serious injury and businesses and individuals at risk of loss of reputation, fines, and even imprisonment?

Watch Arco’s short film to learn more.

Are your workers under threat from an invisible danger?


Think the UK’s not sunny enough to cause skin cancer? Think again.

It’s responsible for 60 worker deaths a year, killing more than falls or crush injuries.

Did you know that outdoor workers are subjected to ten times more sun and UV radiation exposure than indoor workers every year?

Are your workers suffering in silence?


No complaints doesn't mean no problems. With more of your workers wearing PPE for longer periods, washing and sanitising their hands more frequently, the chances are that someone in your business is already suffering from the early stages of dermatitis.

If left untreated, dermatitis can seriously affect your workers' quality of life. Sufferers can end up taking more and more time off work and become unable to carry out their jobs.
