The air conditioner at work has been out since last thursday. I am in Central Texas, and during the day we are reaching triple digits.
Today, is the hottest the building has been in the morning time. It is alreayd 86 degrees and will only get hotter as the day goes on.
We are upstairs in the corner of the building and the windows do not open. So no chance of a breeze. It is stuff and hot.
They said they are working one it, but it has been over a week.
If they do not get it fixed or let us leave, i am seriously thinking i am going to report them. I hate to be the bad guy, but seriously my face is buring already from being hot and my clothes are sticking to me.
Anyone know where it is you report these things too?

Regardless of business size, the minimum temperature for indoor workplaces is 68 degrees Fahrenheit and the maximum is 76 degrees Fahrenheit. The acceptable range for indoor humidity is between 20 and 60 percent. OSHA set these standards in 1975 in consultation with the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers.
After all levels of management have been spoken to it appears OSHA is the next step

"OSHA does not specifically regulate indoor temperature and humidity because these are deemed issues of human comfort rather than safety and health. OSHA recommends only that indoor temperatures be between 68 and 76 degrees Fahrenheit and humidity, between 20 and 60 percent. But these are recommendations---not regulations."

Since you are in PA., perhaps this article would be more relevant?
