Hot Weather Policy – Do You Have One? 

Daytime temperatures are set to soar this summer, according to the Rural Fire Service, creating potential WHS risks and obligations for employers. At the plus 1 group we want your business to be prepared for what’s coming so make sure you have a hot weather policy in place.
It’s vitally important to have a policy for managing work during hot weather.

Your policy should provide general guidelines to help employees combat heat-stress. It should also provide information about identifying and preventing heat-related stress, for example through drinking and eating regularly and self-monitoring for signs of stress. Importantly, your policy should enable you to direct employees to carry out alternative duties or to send them home in extreme or unsafe hot weather conditions.
