Arco

Arco Experts in Safety – Helping to Ensure Transport and Logistics Workers Go Home Safe Every Night.

In today’s fierce and competitive Transport and Logistics landscapes, the stakes are high for operators to win and maintain a client’s business.

For many Transport and Logistic operators, the financial burdens it takes to win a contract can make it extremely difficult to operate at a profitable margin.

Because of this, money-saving processes can easily be introduced to overcome these challenges – but saving money should never pose a threat to Transport and Logistics employee safety.

Particularly in an industry that the Health and Safety Executive reports has an industry fatal injury rate around 2 times higher and than all other industries.

Health & Safety Responsibility

Many Transport and Logistics Health & Safety professionals believe CE markings guarantee to keep their company compliant with safety regulations. However, many are surprised to learn that product modification can occur by manufacturers, with no communication sent to customers, or even re-testing to confirm they are still safe.

There are also procedural weaknesses within the CE type approval process of PPE. These weaknesses can allow less reputable manufacturers gain certification and then subsequently make changes to the product, potentially reducing its level of protection.

Can You Trust the CE Mark?

What this means for Transport and Logistics’ Health & Safety professionals is that CE markings do not guarantee compliance, therefore making them liable in the event of an incident and exposing employees to greater risk of workplace injury and illness.

Today’s Transport and Logistics organisations need an expert partner who can provide solutions for all their safety needs - from quality assured PPE and safety products to services, consultancy and training, that also help:

  • mitigate your risks
  • protect your people, brand and reputation
  • keep you compliant
  • save time and money
  • ensure ethically sourced products.
