The temperature in the workplace should normally be at least 16 degrees centigrade unless the work requires considerable physical effort, when it should be at least 13 degrees. These temperatures do not apply to rooms (or parts of rooms) where it would be impractical to maintain such temperatures, such as rooms which have to be open to the outside or where food has to be kept cold. In such cases, the temperature should be as close to 16 degrees (or 13 degrees) as is practical. A thermometer must be provided so that workers can check the temperature inside the building. Further information about workplace temperature is available from the Health and Safety Executive's website at www.hse.gov.uk or, in N. Ireland, from the Health and Safety Executive for Northern Ireland's website at www.hseni.gov.uk.
There is no legislation which lays down a maximum temperature for workplaces, although all employers must ensure that the temperature of the workplace does not have a detrimental effect on the health of the employees and all reasonable steps must be taken to achieve a comfortable temperature.
