||Exposure to heat at the place of work can cause serious health problems and accidents, possibly leading to death, particularly during outdoor work, such as among construction workers or during road inspection and cleaning. In order to ensure work under acceptable conditions, employers are required to take preventive measures as far upstream as possible. This article summarizes the main provisions of French regulations that apply to work during hot weather conditions, concerning the requirement that employers implement individual and organizational preventive measures as a function of weather conditions, applicable to both workplaces and working conditions.
