I know there's a minimum one but our Air Con is fucked up and it's 31C here at my desk.
FUCK, I AM HOT!
but whos ever gonna enforce it?
because we're traditionally a cold nation, there's never been a requirement like that. Just one about it being too cold...
we should adopt that, but 5 degrees lower coz we're not used to the heat.
but noone knows what it is...
If it gets over 30 in our office, they bring us icecreams.
your office is soooo nice :(
Yep, the condition of the air is FUCKING HOT.
As if I can work in these conditions.
After hearing that you are off to see Take That last night, our friendship is now officially 'back on' thanks to this sort of attention to detail.
and on a school night.
I didn't mean to be. Blame Sophie, that's what I say.
i think you can walk out after 32.
in our office 22 is defined as a comfortable temperature, and it's officially hot above that.
imagine trying to homogenise some legislation across a board of employment which includes things like working in steel mills. or pottery kiln places. or some kitchens. or etc.
that is why there is no capping apparently.
which is annoying. my office got to 31C too the other week, I'm not looking forward to going in later on, it's even hotter today :(
the air con is broken, you see, and they can't open the windows because they're like... bolted shut. because a while ago a window cleaner opened one and it fell out, and the people who own the place figured it'd be cheaper to just bolt the windows shut than get them fixed. clever thinking, there.
The Regulations on this just say that the working temperature must be reasonable. And guidelines to this only mention a minimum temperature of about 16c, nothing is said about a maximum temperature.
See, I DO know things about stuff
for good or evil?
schoooooool. how we loved the hot summer times... kiddies passing out in playgrounds etc.
there is also a max office temp - yeah... mine right now is no shite, about 38 degrees....
whats the minimum?
