Cooling off in harsh working environments

During the foundation stages of construction projects, personnel can often be working either underground or in confined and badly ventilated environments. During the summer months, the use of heavy machinery in such environments causes the temperature to rise to dangerously, creating uncomfortable and unsafe working conditions. Providers of temporary power and temperature control services, can assist construction companies to create safe and comfortable working environments for personnel. This demonstrates an organisation’s commitment to the well-being of their workforce as well as to industry legislation and standards.

Take note

Excessive temperatures result in uncomfortable and unsafe working conditions.

Temporary temperature control services are available.

Proper site temperature control requires expert advice to render the most efficient solution.
