Energy: IG Metall warns of health risks from saving energy

In view of possible energy-saving measures, IG Metall warns of health risks if temperatures at the workplace are too cold. "With regard to the room temperature, the ergonomic minimum values ​​must be observed and under no circumstances may they be undercut," said board member Hans-Jürgen Urban.

Otherwise, the employees would be exposed to a significantly increased health risk, he said. "Lowering the room temperature below the minimum limit of 20 degrees in office work would increase the risk of infection and colds in the company, which would lead to more days lost and increased costs for the company."

Urban was also skeptical as to whether more work from the home office would lead to energy savings. The energy saved in the company can quickly be more than compensated for by heating the apartments of the employees and the associated costs are borne by them.
