Keep your business up and running


Arco has stocked up on winter products and launched an expert guide on how businesses should prepare for winter with the right workwear and equipment to weather any storms and freezing conditions and provide a safe working environment.


To help ensure everyone enjoys a safer winter working environment, Arco has stocked up on all the items necessary for winter such as de-icing salt, salt spreading equipment and snow shovels so that well prepared businesses will have everything that they need to keep exterior access routes and car parks clear and minimise risks caused by snow and ice, in particular slips, trips and falls. Arco is supporting this with an Expert Guide to Winter Workplace Safety that offers all the advice a business needs to prepare for wintry conditions. The Guide offers customers advice on buying and using salt economically and safely with additional recommendations on the types of equipment needed for spreading and storing salt.


Arco offers only marine salt, one of the purest forms of salt, and therefore an excellent de-icer, and can supply in quantities from single bags, through to tonne bags and loose salt.


Working in cold environments can impose physical hazards, health risks and affect an individual’s performance in the workplace. With many people working or travelling to work in environments that are exposed to the cold, wet, or windy conditions during the winter months, it is imperative that they are able to protect themselves against the elements and accidents that can occur.


When the temperature drops outside, workers can stay protected with Arco’s highly durable range of jackets, fleeces, thermals, hats, gloves and footwear. www.arco.co.uk
