With its ongoing mission of leading the event rental industry, Arena Americas is taking safety to new heights with increased safety standards and guidelines for all employees. Arena has developed a comprehensive in-house training program called “Arena Academy” which provides a hands-on setting for team members to learn important safety skills when on the jobsite.
