Excessively high or
low temperatures in an office area can also lead to symptoms in
building occupants and reduce productivity. High temperatures have been
associated with fatigue, lassitude, irritability, headache and decrease
in performance, coordination and alertness. A number of factors
interact to determine whether people are comfortable with the
temperature of the indoor air. The activity level, age, and physiology
of each person affect the thermal comfort requirements of that
individual. Extreme heat, which is unlikely to be found in an office
environment, can result in heat rash, exhaustion, and fainting. Workers
who may be less alert or fatigued from a high temperature environment
may be more prone to accidents.
