There are a number of ways to manage your risk exposure:
1. Duplication of Refrigerated Contents
2. Maintenance of Power Supply
Many claims arise from contractors turning off electrical power or refrigeration units being moved and then not plugged in again.
3. Provision of Alarms and Emergency Response Mechanisms
Early detection of a critical change in temperature is important. Arrange scheduled manual monitoring or an automatic alarm linked to a central monitoring station.
Devise an emergency response procedure and communicate this to all relevant parties. Solutions need not be costly – a contract with an ice supplier to supply ice at short notice or using bottled gas coolant for a short term might be very effective.
4. Fire Brigade Pre-planning
Fire personnel are trained to shut down power on arrival at a site. Pre-planning with the fire department could avoid this or at least minimise interruption of power.
5. Liquid Nitrogen Dewars
Flexible and portable, Dewars don’t rely on electrical supply - but often contain material with extremely low critical thaw temperatures.
