EV Charge Points Prove A Welcome Addition At Warner Leisure Hotels

EV Charge Points Prove A Welcome Addition At Warner Leisure Hotels

An Electric Vehicle charge point network installed by Rolec EV last summer for Warner Leisure Hotels is proving to be a welcome addition to the services offered by the popular regional hotel chain.

 

The free-to-use Rolec EV charging points, available at all Warner Leisure Hotels throughout the UK, allow guests to charge their electric vehicles during their stay.

 

Mat Finch, Marketing Director for Warner Leisure Hotels, commented: “We are proud that, collectively, Warner Leisure Hotels is offering modern alternatives - such as charging points for electric vehicles.

 

Winter Warning

Winter is coming, and employers need to watch out for the risks that the cold season with its shorter days brings to construction and utility personnel working and travelling outdoors.

 

Vocational learning specialist Develop Training Ltd (DTL) points out employers have a duty of care to protect their employees, even in the absence of a legal minimum working temperature limit. Failing to do so, if it results in injury, could lead to prosecution. Managers should also realise that employees suffering from cold will be less able to do their jobs and may be more likely to make a hazardous error, DTL says.

 

The scale of the risks can range from reduced dexterity with cold fingers to loss of limbs due to frostbite or even death from hypothermia.
