    OOPS! Our Bad.Photographs on pages 20, 22 and 23 in the March 2016 issue were inadvertently labeled "Mo Valley Convention" when in fact, they were from the Southwestern Ice Association. We apologize for this error.

  • Remembering Robert Salter, Prestige IceI was wondering if I could request an extra copy of the February 2016 issue. You have a page in there with a decade ago of the SIE and my business partner that has since passed away is in the middle of that page and I would like to give his wife one of your magazines. Also, just an FYI, the man that died from Prestige Ice is on that same page with his brother Ronnie. Great job! Thank you so much.

    Great Topics, Fantastic Location and Turn-Out Highlight The SIE 127th Annual Convention In Cape Coral

    With much on the agenda to propel the ice industry forward, there wasnt a dull moment at the recent SIE meeting in Cape Coral, March 30 April 2. There is so much to cover from the convention that RM will continue to publish information shared at the meeting, including the important EPA and DOE mandates for energy consumption.

    Karl Katuin, Refrigeration Engineer with Leer, and Brian Dallman, Refrigeration Engineer with Polar Temp, spoke on the new Freon regulations for your indoor merchandisers. Coming to terms with the EPAs refrigerant rulings will take some time, study and effort in order to comply. Leer and Polar Temp are spearheading this complicated but mandatory compliance, and RM will be sharing regular tips, counsel and guidance from these two ice merchandiser manufactures. Thanks, Leer and Polar Temp!

    Venerable and admired longtime member of the ice industry, Raymond South of Keith Manufacturing received the well-deserved Hall of Fame Award.

    The magazine was going to press during the convention, so this reporter got in a few highlights to make the issue. More reporting on the SIE meeting will be in our May issue.

    Happy Reading!

    Only 22 percent of retailers are equipped to process new EMV cards at the checkout lanes of their stores, according to a new special report from Boston Research Partners (BRP).

    EMV cards have an embedded chip, which is a small metal square on the front of the card that adds a higher level of security to the transaction when used in chip-enabled terminals.

    According to the new BRP report, entitled Payment/Data Security in an Omni-Channel World, 38 percent of retailers indicate that payment/data security is a top priority and 53 percent of them say they plan to deploy and activate chip-enabled terminals within the next 12 months.

    This special report is based on insights gained from BRPs 2016 POS/Customer Engagement Survey and highlights the payment security objectives and challenges facing leading retailers today. Specifically, the report addresses topics such as: EMV compliance progress, alternative payment type adoption, payment card processing architecture approaches, and the increased shift to online fraud.

    Hackers and fraudsters are becoming increasingly sophisticated, requiring retailers to reanalyze and revamp their current security protocols in order to adequately protect the interests of themselves and their customers, said Perry

    Kramer, vice president and practice lead for Boston Retail Partners. The good news is that retailers realize the magnitude of payment risks and continue to focus resources to lock-down payment and data security across all touchpoints.

    The use of EMV-compliant payment solutions weakens the incentive for thieves to steal credit card information by requiring that the physical card be present at the transaction.

    [But] EMV adoption in and of itself does not do anything to actually reduce the risk of a breach, noted

    Ryan Grogman, vice president at Boston Retail Partners. The most effective approach for securing payment card transactions is a multi-tiered approach, which includes implementing end-to-end encryption (E2EE) and tokenization in addition to support for EMV.

    EMV stands for Europay, MasterCard and Visa the three companies that originally created the security standard.

  • Many job-related injuries in the cold chain industry occur because employees are not trained in the proper job procedures. One way to prevent these injuries is to conduct a job safety analysis, which is an effective tool for eliminating or minimizing workplace hazards.

    The International Association of Refrigerated Warehouses (IARW) Safety Committee recently developed the Job Safety Analysis Guide to help warehouse managers plan their own job safety analyses.

    The guide includes a template that can be used to conduct a job safety analysis and customized to meet each company's needs.

    IARW Safety Committee Chairman Ken Hudson, Director of Environmental Health and Safety-Western Division for Lineage Logistics, believes that companies can help prevent injuries by looking at operations and establishing proper job procedures, ensuring that all employees are trained properly.

    "Performing a job safety analysis allows warehouse facilities to evaluate each job task to identify inherent hazards associated with the job tasks our employees are performing in an effort to eliminate or reduce the risk of injuries," he says. "Companies that have remained faithful and disciplined to employee safety and have integrated saf
