Unfortunately for some, the UK Health & Safety Executive state that whilst there is no upper limit for the working environment, they suggest that the minimum temperature in a workplace should normally be at least 16 degrees Celsius. If the work involves rigorous physical effort, the temperature should be at least 13 degrees Celsius. Whilst these temperatures are not an absolute legal requirements; the employer has a duty to determine what reasonable comfort will be in the particular circumstances.

Temperature data loggers are ideal for monitoring and recording the temperature in a wide variety of installations. Being relatively small, they can be discretely placed in the working environment. They will automatically take readings every ten minutes or so and produce a graph of temperature against time on our TempIT graphical analysis software. Showing exactly the temperature of the working environment.

Another problem encountered during hot weather is the efficiency of air conditioning systems. Again, strategically placed temperature data loggers will record the exact temperature in those locations.
