I work in fast food, and after speaking to a lot of my colleagues I've found that I'm not the only one at work who feels it is too hot. We do have air conditioning, but the managers all admit it does not work.
I've asked many times to be put on a cooler station, such as by the window or door, but they keep sticking me in the hottest places. I do not work in the kitchen, so I can only imagine the discomfort they have.
I go through 2 cans of spray and 3 roll on deodorants a week to keep myself fresh, otherwise I get in trouble for the smell.
I feel I'm being treated wrongly, and no one else there is making a stand, I have mentioned this a few times, but my boss does nothing.
This week alone, 2 employees have been sent home after throwing up due to heat, 2 have fainted from the heat, and many call in sick from heat exhaustion after doing a shift the day before.
What can I do? Can I report the heat conditions? Is there any other action I can take.
As it is fast food, I obviously can't bring a fan into work, so please, I hope someone can help me here.
