Whether the employer is required to provide heatingdepends on the practicality and the job. For example, you cannot be provided withheating on a building site or in a Garage such as a tyre fitting bay wherevehicles are in and out with monotonous regularity. To heat such a building wouldbe an impossibility. However, it is not unreasonable for the employer toprovide a heated restroom.
The employer is under a duty to provide a safesystem of work. It would depend whether there was a risk of heavy items fallingon your feet as to whether he would be required to provide steel toed boots.
Influenza is a viral infection and has nothing todo with being cold I am told. It ispassed from one person to another through the air and it can be absorbedthrough the skin.
It may be that your immune system is not up toscratch, and in that respect, you might want to see your doctor. I can almostguarantee it is nothing to do with the door being open.
I appreciate that this is not the answer youwanted, but there is no point in me misleading you.
Can I help further?
