New £600,000 Safety Centre unveiled in Manchester

Health and safety specialist, Arco, has opened a new Safety Centre in Trafford Park, Manchester, providing both safety training and essential kit in one facility.

The new Safety Centre will be home to training facilities for working at height, confined space, respiratory protection, face fit testing and health & safety management as well as a new store offering over 2000 products.

To ensure that those working in situations with potential ‘mortal risk’ are equipped with the necessary training and practical experience Trafford Park Safety Centre is home to purpose-built specialist training facilities.

According to Arco, the centre contains a confined space training labyrinth including more than 30 metres of tunnels and chambers and a variety of entry points. It also offers apparatus that simulate different working at height situations, including an external rooftop training facility with additional internal rooftop systems, a working at height gantry and a pitched roof (available soon).

Trafford Park Safety Centre also houses training rooms that can accommodate both large and small groups for training and meetings.

Paul Frewin, Divisional Director of Regions & Retail, said: “The opening of our new Trafford Park Safety Centre is an important milestone for Arco as it will provide our customers with a one-stop-shop for all of their safety needs. As experts in safety, we understand that each business faces its own unique and complex challenges and that, in order to manage workplace health and safety, we need to provide joined-up safety solutions to help our customers.

“The new Trafford Park Safety Centre will offer customers the best possible selection of products and services with our own in-store experts available to offer advice and training, ensuring an effortless customer experience. In addition to providing both products and services in one place, we are confident that local tradesmen will enjoy the new location within the busy industrial estate.”
