Is your UK office a comfortable temperature in which to work? Make sure that you are following The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations. Copies of the Health and Safety Executive guidance Thermal Comfort in the Workplace – Guidance for Employers (ISBN 07176 2468 4, price £3.50) are available at , www.hse.gov.ukThe guidance reminds employers to provide adequate heating; to reduce exposure by separating cold areas from those where people work; and to introduce appropriate working practices and systems. All common sense, but these measures can make all the difference between a comfortable working environment and one which is uncomfortable, stressful and possibly harmful.
