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

If you have any questions relating to the health and safety of your team, get in touch! 09 299 2525.
