Dr Biodun Adewumi of Life Healings Hospital has called on authorities of organisations to relax their dressing codes for workers amid the heat waves in the country.

Mr Adewumi told journalists on Wednesday that it was important to consider the health of workers while protecting their organisations’ policies.

He said allowing their workers to work in a relaxed mood would also enhance their productivity apart from safeguarding their health.

He said,”The heat wave now is serious and everyone must take precautionary measures so as not to become a casualty. Organisations such as banks and other corporate offices should be lenient with their workers now in terms of dressings, so as not to endanger their lives. Some offices do not even have fans or air conditioners, and those that do, do not have light to power them. So, why suffering the workers by insisting on certain dress codes with the increased heat everywhere. This is just a call for mercy and I hope they yield to it.’’

 Adewumi, however, advised the public to remain hydrated by taking water intermittently and avoid coffees and warm or hot drinks.

He added that they should always find shade to stay if they have to be outside their houses when the sun is high.
