Covid-19 (Coronavirus) Updates

Last updated: 30/07/2020

Polar Ice continue to operate and support critical supply chains. We have implemented a number of precautionary measures at our premises to protect the safety, health, and welfare of our employees, customers, and contractors in light of heightened risk of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) nationally.

  • Restricted access to our main premises and depots for non-Polar Ice personnel. Customers collecting dry ice are asked to ring at least 30 minutes in advance and we will have the order ready for collection outside.
  • Reduced the number of front-line staff on-site at any one time and facilitated remote working for all other staff.
  • Put enhanced sanitising procedures in place on all work-surfaces and company vehicles.
  • Continued to update our employees on Covid-19.
  • Established and tested our ICT systems to ensure that it’s business as usual for all customers.

We are continuing production and have implemented contingency plans to ensure minimal impact to our supply chain and our customers. We are monitoring events closely and we are acting accordingly based on the latest information available from public health officials. Our ultimate concern is the health of our employees and customers.
