32 degrees in our office the other day. I’m expecting the same today. Considerably hotter than outside. I don’t know how this is possible, but it is.
This caused a near walkout last week, so some blokes came and measured up to fit the air con units, under threat of having no staff left to complain about it being like a ****ing oven in here!!!Posted 3 years agoMrOvershootSubscriber
Never mind you seat shiners, today is mill stop day and its about 37 deg in there now and once the plant stops all the air movement stops and the heat radiates out of the equipment so it usually nudges up to the 40 deg mark.(no opening windows either)
Plus we have to wear hairnet, hardshell hat, gloves, safety glasses & an extra foodsafe layer so within 1/2 hour you are mostly just wringing wet with sweat.
So don’t start moaning about sitting on your ring in a warm office :pPosted 3 years agoMilkieMember
32°C at the moment and the machines below me are about to start, one of which has a 10Kw heater! No doubt it will nearly touch 40°C and the computers will fall over, this is the temperature with the air con on full blast. No windows, no fresh air, just a pure sweatbox. 😉Posted 3 years agoweekendworrier wrote:
I’m getting a bit warm in my dressing gown so I might put on some shorts and a t-shirt in a bit.
I quite like working at home when it’s like this.
oooh good call. I’ve taken off my t-shirt but my groin’s getting a bit sticky in my jeans, Might strip to my pantsPosted 3 years agoahwilesSubscriber
i’m a measurement geek, i work in a quiet air conditioned room, held at a dry* 20degrees.
(*any sweat evaporates very quickly, so it feels even cooler than 20)

My office today is at home, it’s a little bit cloudy right now so I’ll work inside this morning but this afternoon I’ll mostly be outside on conference calls drinking coffee, wine, beer as the day progresses.
This is in stark contrast to the day I spent yesterday sweltering in an office with no aircon, no opening windows and the sun blazing directly into it.
It all balances out I suppose.Posted 3 years agojekkylMember
here’s a tip: put your desk fan under your desk, thus it won”t blow your paper everywhere, take your shoes and/or socks off occaisionally and wriggle your toes in front of it. There’s a main artery going through your ankles so in theory it should help to cool down your whole body, it certainly helps to keep me cool plus it helps to blow away any little tommy squeakers towards julie from accounts 😉Posted 3 years agoahwilesSubscriber

Like ahwiles I work in stds laboratories, 20+/-1degC all day every day apart from when I’m sitting in the car between facilities.
who do you work for ah? Metrology is a very small world, probably know each other or the same people.
