At my last job, the owner would cut off the gas during the summer. So last winter, when the first cold front came through, the gas wasn’t turned on.  It was like 40 degrees in the office!! It was horrible, so I just had several layers of clothes on and kept heating mugs of water to hold on to lol.  Thinking back, I should have just went home!

I freeze at work too … Our Salon is part of a shopping complex and we are right inside of a set of double automatic doors and when the doors open it is like the wind goes right into the salon so it is always really breezy. The breeze makes it feel like the air conditioning is on.There is nothing we can do our heating system is controled by the main office. Because I cut hair it is not practical for me to wear a outer sweater or a coat bc the hair would be all over it. I cant wear gloves I do wear long sleeves but i always have to push them up out of the way and i layer it over a tanktop and I wear long socks to help keep my legs warm… I have the last few days since the temperatures here have been in the high 20s I have been leaving my scarf on and just tucking it down in my apron. 

It is definately not unusual for us to have our hooded dryers running to help put out some heat  and to see us warming ourselves with the blowdryers when the shop isnt busy lol.

Does America have health and safety laws regarding the workplace? We have laws regarding temperature and lighting etc.

They just freaking turned off the air conditioning yesterday… so they say… I don’t believe them it’s like 3degrees warmer in here.  drinking lots of tea and moving around is helping.  I love the usb powered gloves tho!

I work in a super old cinder block building. I don’t think they understood insulation when they built this thing. It’s always ridiculously cold. I’ve been wearing glove when I type, though, so that helps.

Don’t laugh…. http://www.hsn.com/infomercial/heat-surge-amish-made-electric-fireplace_pf-964408_xp.aspx?&rdr=1&cm_mmc=Shopping%20Engine-_-Froogle-_-Infomercial-_-964408

I got one from Lowe’s last year for $200. It’s small and compact but it is NOT a space heater. It’s pretty freakin’ awesome. I couldn’t find it on the Lowe’s website but maybe you could use something similiar. It’s not dangerous at all–it’s like plugging in a fan at your desk.
