Hotter than July

Posted on - July 20, 2020

Temperatures have been high this month – but could they be about to get even hotter?

August is traditionally our warmest period – and with forecasts good and climate change seemingly driving temperatures ever higher – we could be in for a sweltering few months.

All just as we are starting to get back to work.

Which raises the perennial problem of heat and glare in the workplace.

Too hot at work

When the sun’s out and the heat is on some working environments can become unbearable.

The strong sunlight through office windows raises the temperature even more – and worse – traps the heat inside – making your workplace more like a greenhouse.

It’s no joke – research has shown that there is a significant increase in the risk of accidents at work when temperatures are too high.

On top of that, the heat and discomfort lowers concentration levels and adversely affects productivity.

We know everyone is trying to get back to some kind of ‘normal’ after the lockdown – but do you really want to go back to a normal that has colleagues, staff and customers melting as your place of work starts to resemble a sauna?

Hotter than July

Was the title of the 1980 album by Stevie Wonder, which was his most successful album ever in the UK, reaching No:2 in the charts and producing 4 top ten singles. 

It was reportedly influenced by his meeting with Bob Marley and has a more reggae style than previous albums.

It contains some great tracks including “I Ain’t Gonna Stand For it”, “Master Blaster”, and “Lately”.

Perhaps the most significant track though given the current ‘Black Lives Matter’ situation is ‘Happy Birthday” – written to commemorate Martin Luther King and part of his attempt to get January 15th recognised as a national holiday in the US.

Anyway – listen to Stevie here:

Master Blaster

I Ain’t Gonna Stand For It
