Although not an enforceable law, Government guidance suggests an indoor workplace should be no colder than 16ºC or 13ºC if employees are doing physical work. However there is no guidance on maximum temperatures. I guess no guidance exists for maximum temps as it's only in recent years it's become an issue.

I set, program and operate CNC Brakepresses. One of jobs is for a customer who makes temporary football ground stands. (We did all the steelwork for Salford Citys ground). Each treadplate is 100kg and measures 2400mm x 1200mm, two folds per part, which involves lifting it off a pallet, onto a barrow, lifting into the machine, turning it over and then doing another fold the opposite direction to make a "z" shape. Then lift it off again.

Its a 2 man job, its ****ing heavy and dirty work. Doing that job in winter isn't an issue as you're hot and tired from lifting all day so minimum temperature shouldn't really apply..

Trouble is that all football clubs want this work done in off season (summer).

I have just finished my 8th litre of water and yet to have a piss today.

Im literally soaked through

Be careful there fella, those are not healthy levels of hydration

We’re moving house over the next three days. Today was packing and loading some vans. I’ll b getting on the scale later, I reckon I’ve lost a good amount of weight. Not fun.

Any of you eating out have a bit of patience with the kitchen staff, it’s stupidly hot in a commercial kitchen on a cold day.

This is the top of the seat in my car, and why I've been riding my scooter to work this last 10 days. 214405E3-12D7-4B0A-BF04-CC3B8FAFC002.jpeg

Apart from the summer of 76, we never used to get temperatures like this in summer. Now it seems to be the norm.
Do i like it ? as much as been forced to be in a oven.

Just cooked the children some dinner and opened the oven to get the food out, it was nice to have a cooling breeze for once.

25 is a perfect summers day for me, warm enough for the beach and swimming, cool enough to operate a normal life.

25-30 is getting too warm for work/physical exertion etc . . . 30 + is just daft.

Remember that well..my first year in employment....one suit and two shirts for most of it....geez I don’t know how I coped.
That was bone dry and if I remember correctly didn’t break until September
