When people are too hot

Guidance from HSE https://www.hse.gov.uk/temperature/employer/index.htm

You can help ensure people are comfortable in warm conditions:

  • Provide fans, such as desk, pedestal or ceiling-mounted ones
  • Provide air-cooling or air-conditioning and good ventilation
  • Ensure windows can be opened to keep air circulating
  • Shade employees from direct sunlight with blinds or by using reflective film on windows
  • Position workstations away from direct sunlight or sources of heat
  • Place insulating materials around hot plant and pipes
  • Provide cold water dispensers (water is better than caffeine or carbonated drinks)

You can also change work arrangements to avoid people getting too hot:

  • Introduce flexible working patterns, such as job rotation, moving workers to cooler parts of the building where possible
  • Allow enough breaks to allow workers to get cold drinks or cool down
  • Relax formal dress codes – but make sure personal protective equipment is used if required
