Weather the storm

12 December 2017

Arco is urging businesses to prepare for the winter months now, and ensure safety items are maintained and in good working order.

With reports of an increased risk of bad weather this winter, Arco recommends businesses to plan ahead with its expert advice sheets for business winter weather needs, including advice against flooding, effective salting and how to be weather warning aware. 

The series of Arco expert advice sheets can be found on the Arco dedicated winter webpage, including recommendations of essential workplace safety items such as grit bins, blue de-icing salt that is easier to see, salt spreading equipment, shovels, heaters and accessories. Arco also offers a downloadable, easy-to-use ‘Salt Calculator’ app, available from the App store or Google Play, that provides instant calculations for the quantity of salt required for each site, with personalised weather warnings that are tailored to your location.

Being well prepared to deal with extreme weather events can save businesses time and money and will help maintain a safe working environment.

Niall Robinson, product & procurement manager for Arco, said: “As the big chill approaches, we want to make sure our customers are ahead of the game when it comes to protecting their businesses against extreme weather. We have a comprehensive range of solutions to keep workplaces both safe and open throughout periods of extreme weather, and the experienced Arco team are on hand to provide expert advice for all winter business requirements.”
