Managing these hot, humid days
How are you and your team handling the heat?
While we are loving the hot weather, it’s important to ensure we are providing a comfortable working environment for our team, including yourself - to avoid any heat related fatigue.
To safe guard you and your team, make sure you:
Provide and encourage consumption of water - to stay hydrated throughout the day, aiming for 1.5-2L a day
Set a comfortable, cool office temperature and adjust throughout the day accordingly - check your aircon has been serviced! Don’t forget to provide fans to team members out of reach of aircon units or fresh air
Ensure outdoor workers have access to shade and are provided with the appropriate sun protection
Encourage team members to take their breaks, ensuring they move away from their desk to eat a fresh, balanced lunch and avoid heavy meals
Consider implementing a relaxed dress code for the warmer months
