Asbestos Removal Contractors Association (ARCA)
Asbestos – a hidden killer – is the biggest occupational disease risk to construction workers in the UK, with currently approximately 5,000 asbestos related cancer deaths per year (ref HSE Asbestos Related Diseases Nov 2017).
As the UK’s the leading trade association in the field of asbestos management services, ARCA’s mission is to give the best possible service and support to assist members and customers in providing safe, effective and ethical management of asbestos, thereby safeguarding the public.
To support members and their customers, ARCA delivers industry-leading training, undertakes unannounced audits of asbestos removal sites, and provides guidance on managing risks from asbestos and the legal responsibilities.
ARCA is pleased to support the No Time to Lose campaign, and looks forward to working with IOSH to continue to make organisations aware of how to manage the risks from asbestos containing materials.
