Can health and safety stand the heat?
“Every business, whether indoor or outdoor based, should look at how each of their workers may be exposed to excessive heat at work, and look to minimise the risks associated with this exposure. For example, employers may need to schedule additional rest and water breaks in hot conditions for people who work outside. Employers may also need to look at how workplace machinery reacts to unusually warm weather, and be completely confident that it is still safe to use.
“In short, employer's need to make sure that in times of excessive heat, health and safety policies and procedures are not exposed as either inappropriate or redundant when placed under the full spotlight of the sun."
