Microclimate and workplaces

The Legislative Decree n° 81/2008 classifies microclimate as a physical agent, for which risk assessment is mandatory. The term “microclimate” stands for a set of four parameters (air temperature, average radiant temperature, air speed and relative humidity), characterizing an environment from a thermal point of view. This Factsheet shows how to assess the risks related to microclimate in moderate work environments and in hot or cold severe ones.
