UK heat wave – what does HR need to be aware of?


Travel disruptions
· Trains: train tracks can buckle under intense heat, causing delays to services

· Roads: road surfaces can expand and break up, which can cause severe delays before maintenance services can start repairs

· Stations: many stations operate at full capacity, which means the added demand of delays can cause havoc

· Cars and bicycles: both are more likely to suffer faults or problems in hot weather so be prepared – consider a car sharing scheme in advance


· School-aged children may be more likely to suffer problems at school, both heat-related and also physical scrapes because they’ll be outside in the playground more

· All workers may be sleeping badly, but parents may also have to deal with children sleeping badly on top
