We need a maximum working temperature
We need an absolute maximum working temperature to keep people safe from the risks associated with excessive heat and sun exposure.
Trade unions want to see the law changed, so that employers and workers know when action must be taken to keep workers cooler and safer.
While official guidance exists for a *minimum* working temperature of 16°C, there is no law to guide bosses on what a maximum should be. It's time to protect working people feeling the heat!
