    Yes there are guidelines

    It will really depend on your workplace. Sat at a computer? Or working in a furnace?

    Google is your ally for info on this

    For example http://www.gpmu.org.uk/hs/health/msg00015.html

    I work for a heating and ventilation company so you would think there would be air con but no. stuck behind a computer sweating my balls off is no fun, not allowed to wear shorts or take off our ties either.

    Then complain, Im sure if you kick up a fuss theyll at least get a few fans in there.

    I kind of lead a office attire rebellion at our place over having to wear suits and ties in the heat whilst the female members of staff walked round in light skirts, vest tops and sandals. We're now able to wear what we like until the heatwave is over. making people wear suits and ties if they're not customer facing is rediculous.

    I'd at least loosen your tie if not take it off mate. If asked about it just say very politely that you're feeling too hot and it's one way to cool you down, but if you are seeing a customer then you will put the tie back on.....think they'd have problems sacking you and would look right idiots in court, of course it's your own risk to do this. How about buying a desk fan

    I have a desk fan, its ok but you have to remember that it doesnt cool the air down but just moves it. plus all my paper work goes flying. I'll just have to see how the day progresses. If it gets above 36 im out of here.

    I have been told by my boss that there is a law and the working enviroment should not be over 100c if that happens then there should be air conditioning or something like that other wise it is known as a unsutable pkace of work.

    Complain mate other wise just say i cant work in this heat and keep going for breaks too cool down thats what i would do

    lmao, 100 degrees, that is actually boiling temp!

    People would evaporate, skin would no longer be there and wed be walking skeletons.

    Come on, we all know he meant farenheit.
