The IOR is encouraging businesses across the whole spectrum of the cooling industry to work together to raise the profile of the refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pumps sector and to promote the benefits or RACHP to us all by opening up their manufacturing, cold stores, supermarkets or service premises to the public on 26th June - World Refrigeration Day.    


To support those businesses to taking part, IOR will be providing resources like videos, games, presentations, H&S templates and promotional material for the #openforcooling campaign. 


IOR will also promote planned events on social media and on its website page.


All businesses big or small can take part – all you need to do is to decide who you want to invite into your premises, plan how you are going to entertain them with tours, talks or fun events and download a resource pack from the IOR with posters, information sheets, video and careers information.
