Working In Hot Environment Guidance Materials

With summer just around the corner, have you reviewed and updated your heat stress program and policy?

There are currently no legislations that indicate the maximum temperatures employees may be exposed to in the workplace however Australian employers do have a duty of care to provide, maintain and ensure that so far as reasonably practical, a safe working environment for employees and that all employers are to take practical steps to minimise the risk of heat hazards in the workplace environment.

Working in intense heat regardless of whether you are indoor or outdoor, can increase normal body temperatures and lead to a range of symptoms from discomfort to life threatening scenarios.

If you haven't reviewed or do not have a heat stress program in place, a good place to start for information is your state's regulator.
