Summary: Both employees and employers may wonder what laws about temperature in workplace say. The short answer is - there is no legal maximum working temperature per say. OSHA recommends that employers set the thermostat between 68 and 78 degrees. Also, OSHA regulations come into play when temperatures reach an extreme level to the point where dangerous conditions like heat stress or hypothermia can occur. State OSHA plans may differ from federal plans. Employers should follow OSHA workplace temperature standards when setting office and work thermostats.
