Summer can be one of the most dangerous times for employees working indoors. When the heat rises, some buildings can become stifling and cause a lot of health problems for your employees. Treatment for some of these problems may be more expensive than working to prevent them from happening, and your options range from cool roofs to some simple precautionary actions.

1) Windows and Blinds

This can be especially useful when the wind is blowing, allowing you to cool things down for no charge at all. However, changes in weather or location can reduce the effectiveness of this. If you’re really looking for a way to cool things down, using the windows of your building should be considered an extra option, rather than a primary one.

Using the blinds is another option for helping to cool the building; many blinds are designed to be able to reflect light when shut, and this can be enormously helpful on a hot day by preventing light from passing through your windows unopposed. Remember to change which blinds are open or closed based on the time of day in order to get the maximum efficiency out of them.

2) Disabling Electronics

Modern machines can produce a lot of heat, especially if they’re being worked hard, and this can make things even worse for workers who have to deal with them. However, turning the machines off when they aren’t needed can significantly reduce the amount of heat they put out over the course of the day as well as helping to reduce the wear and tear on their systems.

3) Cool Roofs

Air conditioners are popular and useful machines for cooling a building down, but they aren’t the only option available. Cool roofs help protect a property from absorbing excessive heat, reducing energy bills and significantly helping the interior temperature. Unlike air conditioners, cool roofs do not require electricity or cooling fluid; the only major upkeep is a top coat every few years, and the energy savings may well end up paying for the roof over time.

4) Plant some Trees

Simply having your building in the shade can sharply reduce the amount of heat that your building absorbs, and having a number of trees around your building offers the dual benefits of natural shade and improving the scenery that can be viewed from inside your building, which may even increase the morale of your workers. However, creating shade may only be practical for smaller buildings, so keep in mind your size and location when deciding whether or not to invest in some foliage.

There are many options for staying cool, and how practical they are will depend on your situation. Whatever your choice is, though, the benefits to your building are worth it.
