Regarding the provision of working conditions during periods of extreme heat


Rostrud reminds employers of the procedure for ensuring appropriate working conditions in periods of extreme heat due to the danger of heat stroke during long stays in a room with high air temperature.

To reduce these occupational risks, Rostrud encourages employers to ensure a favorable temperature regime, for example, provide air conditioning and the opportunity for adequate breaks for rest. It is also important to ensure the availability of clean drinking water and access to a first-aid kit at the workplace.

Rostrud also reminded employers of the existing sanitary  and epidemiologic rules and standards obligatory to application to reduce working hours:

• by one hour – if temperature reaches 28.5°C;
• by two hours – if  temperature increases to 29°C;
• by four hours – at a temperature of 30.5°C.

For employees whose duties are connected with permanent movement (walking), from moderate to considerable physical activities, heavy lifting and the movement of heavy goods, working hours are reduced when temperatures reach lower values, at  26.5-27.5 degrees.
