    Angry anyone know if????

    does anyone know if there is a law or regulation that states maximum working temperature for a period of time? i know there is definatly one for minimum temperature but cant find anywhere information on a maximum temperature, our office here at the school backs onto the pool and today has reached temperatures of 36.5 in the office, but we are still expected to work in this?? i thought this was not right and we have been denied fans and air con too!
    any information or links to sites that may provide information would be brill,
    thanks guys and gals

    When I worked in a kitchen, we were told there was no maximum temperature, it used to regularly get past 45C and the fans used to just blow the hot air about even more. So in short, nope, no max temp, people just have to suffer it!

    Im pretty sure there is a regulation in place and maybe someone like the HSE would have the info on their website. If so and ur employers are refusing to issue fans or not switch on AC then this has gotta be a no no in the HSE eyes.
    Would do a search myself to see but cant be arsed! Its too hot hahahaha

    there's not a particular temp. but if its uncomfortably hot then the company need to do something about it, even if only to ovoid claims for all sorts of heat related problems.... illnesses.

    I used to work in a call centre and at first they would let you wear casual clothes if it was hot, and if it got that bad they'd just send everyone home early (to save their own skins I guess)...

    Out in the middle east, all of the buildings on army camps are air conditioned and there are fridges full of cold water darted about almost everywhere. Your employer should have a commitment to the staff to everyone cool and well hydrated to prevent heat illness and dehydration.

    If the underground in london reaches 36 deg C, then its shutdown time, so i keep hearing anyways.

    If your not comfortable, take more breaks, drink plenty of water, and complain with others to manager.
