DON’T TAKE A GAMBLE ON THE WINTER

Gritting and risk management specialist, De-ice, will be telling FMs it’s never too early to get the ball rolling and put winter gritting plans into play…

At this year’s Facilities Show, winter gritting and risk management specialist, De-ice will be taking a gambling theme.

Vicky Lopez, co-founder and director at De-ice, says: “We’re looking forward to networking at the De-ice bar again, and exhibiting in the Health and Safety zone for the first time.

“What sparked the gambling theme was the fact that we have had three mild winters in succession – with only a few major snow events across the entire country. This could be enough to deter organisations from putting a winter safety plan in place for next season. But, we’re all aware of the risks we would expose ourselves to by following such an approach – it’s a slippery slope to potential accidents, litigation and reputational damage.

“We want to convey the message that FMs shouldn’t take a gamble. It’s never too early to get the ball rolling and put winter gritting plans into play.”

Visit De-ice at the De-ice Bar, café and networking area at the 2016 Facilities Show, where show visitors will have the chance to take on the Snowball Challenge.

De-ice will also be exhibiting on stand S2350 in the Safety and Health Zone.

On the 22nd June at 2pm, De-ice will be presenting with Engie in the FM in the Real World theatre.
