Indoor temperature plays important role at work

A recent survey carried out by YouGov has revealed that two-thirds (65 per cent) of those who work indoors are up to 50 per cent less productive when working in a room that is too hot.

More than two-thirds (67 per cent) experience drowsiness in a hot room, 56 per cent suffer from loss of concentration, 37 per cent experience headaches and 21 per cent suffer from irritation of the eyes, nose and throat.

The survey also showed that 71 per cent feel that their workplace is too hot or too cold.

Warmafloor managing director Mike Lamb, whose firm sponsored the survey, said: “The economic crisis means that every company wants to get the most productivity out of their workers.”
