With Record Temperatures On The Horizon, CBI Encourages Employers To Be Flexible
The CBI is encouraging companies to consider a range of measures to keep employees comfortable during the heatwave.

The Met Office suggests temperatures could reach their peak on Friday in some areas of the UK.

Matthew Fell, CBI Chief UK Policy Director, said:

“While the current hot spell has provided welcome fillip for consumer-facing sectors, large numbers of employees are feeling the heat as they carry out their day-to-day tasks, especially those working outdoors.

“Responsible employers take the welfare of their employees very seriously, particularly during this unusual weather. Companies can help keep their employees cool by considering a range of measures, from flexible working to help those with punishing commutes to relaxed dress codes, so staff feel more comfortable in their place of work.

“Ultimately a common sense approach is needed, as some employees will have less flexibility than others, for example those wearing safety equipment on construction sites.

“In all cases, staff should have easy access to drinking water as temperatures soar to help keep them healthy and productive.”
