Working in seasonal heat
Heat, whether ‘seasonal’ or part of the ‘normal work environment’, can be a hazard. Working in heat can lead to workers suffering serious illness and can also lead to increased accidents
Working in seasonal heat presents particular health and safety hazards. Over 45% of respondents to a national survey on ‘Stress at Work’ reported that they were experiencing ‘uncomfortable temperatures’ at work.
Especially in Western Australia, where temperatures reach 35 degrees Celsius in spring and 45 degrees Celsius and more in summer, seasonal heat is a hazard for workforce, transported goods and equipment that can’t be ignored. Heat stress must be treated as any other health and safety hazard.
