According to a recent article published in the Daily Mail - Britain is set for an early winter, with snow expected to arrive as soon as next month.
Nicci Davies of Nailsea based Visual Business says that a consequence of bad weather for businesses is falling staff production and often refusal to even work due to severe conditions.
To tackle this problem and stop firms losing money, Visual Business has come up with a solution. The company, which is also one of the UK’s major suppliers of Rock Salt to airports, schools, colleges and businesses, has launched their 2011 winter survival kit, which Nicci believes will alleviate the problem:
“Last year the UK ran out of thermals which led to the most awful time. I had customers whose staff refused to undertake some of their roles due to the cold, which caused mayhem and lost them money and future business.
“We’re going to experience the same weather this year – so it’s vital that businesses stock up to avoid being caught out again by snow and wet weather. Amongst the best sellers at the moment are thermal t-shirts, long johns, socks, gloves and padded jackets.
Adequate clothing is a key product to maintain good working relationships between employers and employees but the Winter Survival Kit, which buyers can customise to their needs, has a host of add-ons including:
- Red Holdall
- De-Icing Spray
- Screen Wash
- Warning Triangle
- Hi Viz waistcoat
- Thermal Gloves
- 10 kg container of rock salt
- Collapsible shovel
- Ice scraper
- Wind up torch
The kits have gone down a storm with business leaders keen to keep their staff productive, well equipped and safe throughout winter.
According to Nicci the product that is proving to be particular popular is the Visual Business padded fleece, which can accommodate a company logo. And for a limited time only you can have one for just £14.50 if you quote the following code – 2012 – when you contact Nicci.
