TUC Welcomes Call By MPs For Maximum Workplace Temperatures
Commenting on today’s (Thursday) report on heatwaves and climate change from the Environmental Audit Committee, which recommends the government consult on maximum temperatures for workplaces, TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:
“The law only gives minimum working temperatures, but the hot summer we’re having has shown the need for a maximum limit too. It’s great to have support from MPs for this commonsense policy, and we hope the government will take quick action.
“Meanwhile we encourage employers to keep on being sensible while the hot weather goes on. Relaxing dress codes and being flexible on working times to avoid the hottest part of the day can make things much easier.”
