Nothing can lift your mood like glorious sunshine. Except perhaps when you’re stuck in a hot office or factory on a boiling hot day. So, what does the law say on workplace temperature? Is there such a thing as it being ‘too hot to work’? Can staff wear what they want on hot days to keep cool?
An employer has a duty to provide a safe working environment and to assess the health and safety risks to their employees but unfortunately the law does not state a minimum or maximum workplace temperature.
