BRACKNELL MP James Sunderland visited the safety centre, which came as part of £2million business investment.

Safety products and services company Arco launched its largest safety centre in Bracknell, which created 12 jobs. 

Investing more than £2million in the project, Arco’s Bracknell safety centre will offer practical learning environments, including a 20-metre external tower for working at height training and confined space training facilities.

During the visit, the MP was shown around the state-of-the-art facilities and services offered at the centre.

James Sunderland MP, said: “I was really impressed by my first visit to the Arco Safety Centre in Bracknell. Arco has made a significant investment by constructing a bespoke safety hub in Berkshire and is already making a big difference in keeping people safe at work.”

Mr Sunderland discussed important health and safety issues, including the Retained EU Law Bill and the affects this could have on UK Health and Safety Regulations.

In addition to touring the venue, Mr Sunderland also met Arco’s safety experts and was given practical demonstrations of confined space training, respiratory protection, including the importance of face-fit testing, and working at height.

Commercial director at Arco Professional Safety Services, Jamie Sadler, said: “It [the visit] also gave us the opportunity to discuss some of the most important issues facing health and safety regulations in the UK and how Arco, as experts in safety, can continue to work constructively with the Government to maintain the health and safety of UK workers, particularly those who work in hazardous environments that may cause injury, life changing diseases or fatalities.”
