ARCA Staff take on Colour Obstacle Rush for Charity!

To support the ARCA Charity Week 2018, some of the ARCA staff are heading to Uttoxeter Race Course in Staffordshire on Saturday 14th July to take on the 5K Colour Obstacle Rush.

Over the course, the staff will be tackling 20 obstacles and will get doused in colour as they pass 8 colour stations whilst running … or walking the 5K course.

The team; Giulia, Isabelle, Louisa, Sarah B, Sarah H, Satish, Shaun and Steve are really looking forward to the day and are hoping to have fun while raising money for the ARCA charities.

All support would be welcome, as all donations can make a difference. Donations can be made at the ARCA Just Giving page, which can be found at www.justgiving.com/teams/ARCACharityWeek18

ARCA joins the Contamination Expo Series 2018

New date and venue for Expo

ARCA, the UK’s leading association representing asbestos removal contractors, will be exhibiting at the Contamination Expo Series on 12 – 13 September 2018 at the NEC Birmingham.

This is the third year the Contamination Expo Series has been held, however it is the first year the Expo will be at the NEC.

The event will be made up of seven sectors, including hazardous waste and land remediation, all focussed on providing information on, and solutions for, contamination issues.

“For ARCA the event provides a platform to continue communicating how to safely manage asbestos, highlighting property owners and managers’ legal responsibilities, and how ARCA and its members can support them,” comments Steve Sadley, Chief Executive of the Asbestos Removal Contractors Association (ARCA).

“One of our aims is to continually raise professional standards across the industry; developing and delivering training and qualifications (competency), and last year saw ARCA members’ site audits (two per year) becoming ‘unannounced’, so strengthening this method of reassurance for all parties, including end-clients.”

“We are delighted to have the support of ARCA again this year as having asbestos experts at the event is crucial,” stated Daniel Rogers, Events Director of the Contamination Expo Series. “Having the attendance of this leading association will help drive the messages about asbestos to the professionals involved in managing the health and safety risks associated with asbestos in buildings.”

Entrance to the exhibition and seminars is free – tickets can be ordered at www.contaminationexpo.com
