We have a Saint in our midst ...

The company I work for refuses to supply heating to the factory floor, everybody freezes during winter. A thermometer wouldn't save any lives, but it would be interesting to see at what temperature we started to die.

Call the health and safety. The law states if in a physical environment, the temeperature drops less than 13 degrees then the place can be liable for prosecution.

I'm pretty sure people have gone through all this, obviously to no avail, but thanks for the advice, I'll mention it to the guys at work tomorrow. I'm guessing the company would do something like say, "OK, go home." Only to fire you at a later date. They're draconian, honestly. Anyway, this probably isn't the place to discuss this, but thanks, again.

Doesn't everyone love a good old tangible freebie!!!
Thanks very much OP and Heat added.

Flashard, why don't you bring in an electric heater?

Or you can buy those electric heated jacket/gloves from maplin. Or attached a duvet to yourself.

You can also go into any Age UK, if they have a "Spread the Warmth" poster in the window, and ask if they have any free thermometers left - we had a few people today, but no thermometers left, so you may need to leave details to have one sent to you (or use the website).

That's illegal. Report them.

That's not true. There can be any temperature in work place, it may be -5 and +55, as long a proper risk assessment sits somewhere in company files.

Nop matey your wrong there. Open ACAS, open a Proper Health and Safety Guide and read in there. For people who work i chillers or in freezers, they need to be supplied PPE + they need to be supplied hot drinks and stuff to keep them warm. For a typical work environment or a factory as the op mentioned, it should not drop to less than 13 degrees if its physcial work.

You should check on that

I will not argue, im not a lawyer or nothing like that. But I was taught on trainings that everything depends on risk assessment, and choosing proper PPE of course is part of that risk assessment. BTW what 'bout people working outside ?

Hiya I go in ageuk charity shops, and on the back wall they have leaflets, there is one there about keeping warm in winter and inside is a little card thermometer, so best to go in store and get one if you want :-)
