Is it too hot to work? Workspace advice

Do you often wonder what is the maximum working temperature whilst working? Is there a law in place when it’s too hot to work? The answer to this is no, there is no law for a maximum working temperature.


Despite this, employers must still stick to health and safety at work law which includes

  • Keeping the temperature at a comfortable level
  • Providing clean and fresh air


If a workspace becomes uncomfortable employees should talk to their employer to put in place things such as  

  • Desk fans
  • Relaxed dress code
  • Window blinds
  • Insulating hot pipes
  • The windows to be opened
  • And any other methods to decrease the hot temperature
