ARCA Asbestos Removal Contractors Association
Trust a Trader is committed to helping people to find tradesmen that they can rely on. In our bid to encourage best practice within all trades, we urge registered traders to build accreditations and qualifications that exceed the legal requirements.
Dealing with asbestos is a potentially hazardous undertaking that is governed by a host of legal standards. The ARCA (Asbestos Removal Contractors Association) is the UK’s largest organisation to provide guidance and rules about the safe removal and disposal of asbestos. ARCA members must demonstrate their compliance with ARCA codes of conduct and best practice, and are part of the the Site Audit Accreditation Scheme, which makes sure that members are working at and maintaining the Association’s required high standards of working with asbestos.
A person or organisation with ARCA membership demonstrates that they meet member requirements as well as showing their desire to provide best practice in their industry. Members are required to gain a relevant level of insurance for each piece of work undertaken, and are periodically monitored by the association to ensure their continued compliance.
Memberships of professional trade bodies offer customers peace of mind that the work that they ask a tradesperson to undertake is being done to a high standard and in compliance with a range of complex regulations. At Trust A Trader, we encourage such memberships and check each new trader to ensure that they have the qualifications, insurance and professional accreditations that they say they have. In this way, you can rest assured that when you choose a trader on Trust a Trader, you are choosing quality.
