Check minimum and maximum workplace temperatures

Key points

  • Employers must ensure that workplaces comply with the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992, which cover a wide range of matters including temperature in indoor workplaces, ventilation and washing facilities.
  • The Regulations state that, during working hours, the temperature in all workplaces inside buildings should be reasonable.
  • Whether or not the temperature is reasonable will depend on factors such as the type of work being carried out.
