How To Make Sure Your Employees Stay Cool This Summer

Making sure your employees remain cool in their working environment during the summer season is of paramount importance to make sure that health and productivity aren't affected. We all recognise of working in a hot environment is uncomfortable, but what are the actual effects of working in high temperatures? 

  1. Increased irritability
  2. Lack of concentration
  3. Lack of ability for physical tasks

These effects result in a less productive working environment as tasks become more difficult to complete. When a working environment reaches temperatures of above 30°C, the ability to perform mental tasks starts to be affected and work slows. As well as affecting concentration, there are possible health risks to working in an exceptionally warm environment. In extreme cases, employees can suffer from symptoms of heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Therefore, it is down to the employers to make sure that they are providing methods of keeping cool. Here we give you some tips for helping your working environment stay comfortable.

Stay Hydrated

Make sure you have water coolers or drinks fountains readily available around the office to ensure stores are replenished. When working in high temperatures, employees will be losing a lot of fluid through perspiration, so it is important that they continue to top up their water levels to keep their skin cool. Use Cooler Bags to keep refreshments cool next to desks if water coolers are not available.

Use Cooling Pads

Cooling Pads are an excellent way of keeping your employees' body temperatures down when they are sitting at their desks. By placing a cooling pad on their neck they will have better control of their body temperature and increase concentration levels. In addition to this, it is important to allow employees more time to step away from their work and cool down, especially in high-pressure environments or during strenuous activity.
