GMB Union Guide, Feeling The Heat. Working in excessive heat is not only uncomfortable but can be dangerous and in extreme cases fatal.
GMB trade union offer advice to members who are working in the summer heat.
Hot work, either outdoors or indoors, can certainly lead to an increase in accidents and injuries. Some, unenlightened employers, see this as just a seasonal irritation over which they have no control and so have little or no inclination to do anything about looking into control measures. GMB, however, believes that all workers have the right to work in a safe and healthy environment. This guidance should help GMB members wherever they may work.
