Living in Australia, we understand that it can get HOT! Not only outside in the direct sun, but also in shaded or undercover areas equipped with hot machinery or improper ventilation.
Excessive heat in any workplace is considered a genuine Health and Safety hazard. It is the responsibility of the PCBU (Person Conducting a Business or Undertaking) to understand the risks present in their workplace and to take every reasonable precaution to minimise these risks.
The below industries are likely to face the effects of Summer temperatures over the coming months and are recommended to begin investing in quality heat safety products and procedures now.
