Office Premises Act, 1958


10.—(1) Effective provision shall be made for securing and maintaining a reasonable temperature in each room, but no method shall be employed which results in the escape into the air of any room of any fume of such character and to such extent as to be likely to be injurious or offensive to persons employed therein.

(2) The Minister, after consultation with the Minister for Health, may, by regulations for offices or for any class or description of office or parts thereof, prescribe a standard of reasonable temperature and prohibit the use of any methods of maintaining a reasonable temperature which, in his opinion, are likely to be injurious to the persons employed, and direct that thermometers shall be provided and maintained in such places and position as may be specified.
