Guidance for Managing Working in Elevated Temperatures

Guidance for Managing Working in Elevated Temperatures

Developed in consultation with all sectors of the UK glass manufacturing industry, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and with input from worker unions, this guidance provides practical guidance to help employers understand where the potential for heat-related illness could occur, recognise the symptoms and ensure that necessary control measures are understood and can be properly implemented.

There are examples of heat related medical problems caused by heat stress in industrial, military, rescue and leisure industries and a key factor in many of these cases is the level of understanding of working in hot conditions - both behaviourally and physiologically. Task performance, co-ordination and judgement can also be detrimentally affected by exposure to elevated temperatures - in some industries this has been shown to affect levels of unsafe acts and accidents.

Further information about the development of this guidance can be found on the document's initial launch press release .

Hardcopies are available at a rate of £5.00 each (minimum order of four) or 10 copies can be purchased for £30.00. To place an order, or for a price for a larger volume, please contact us .
