The nights are already drawing in, and soon winter will be with us in full force. So now’s the time to make sure that your business is prepared if you want to avoid the chaos brought by the severe weather of the start of 2010.
With a leading authority on forecasting the British weather warning that the UK could be in for a second consecutive big freeze, leading safety equipment specialist Safetyshop.com is asking business owners and managers to think ahead, and ask themselves how their day-to-day operations would cope.
The UK could be in for “a combination of snow, ice and bitterly cold temperatures and another ‘white-out’ as some areas grind to a halt,” warned Jonathan Powell of Positive Weather Solutions. His organisation correctly forecast the big freeze earlier this year.
“If these predictions from experienced weather-watchers are to be believed, we’re in line for another harsh winter,” said Kimberley Slack, Safetyshop’s Internet Marking Executive.
“But there is no need for businesses to be caught cold by a sudden freeze,” Kimberley added.
“Stocking up on essentials such as anti-slip matting, using heaters and fans to keep your working environment at the right temperature, and having all the appropriate safety signs in place will help you stay productive through the worst this winter has in store.”
