I work in a textile factory that has no A/C during the summer and is on average about 94 degrees in there. We have fans but with my due date being early Nov, I am going to be miserable during the summer. What are the risks of working in those conditions? Please help me.

Isn't your employer responsible for ensuring a safe workplace for you? I'm pretty sure they need to provide you with an alternative. It isn't safe to be working in that heat.
Thank-you Bokkechick for the beautiful siggy!

Talk to your doctor about it and get an official note if your work doesn't respond to your concerns. While pregnant its important not to let your body temp rise too much.

My office recently entered negotiations to sell our building to another business, who wants to renovate the entire building and move into our unused spaced, while continuing to rent to us. Its a VERY VERY old building (over 100 years) with numerous types of renovations over the intervening years. I am extremely concerned about the release of particles and asbestos and things like that while I am working. Once the renovations are officially set to start I will definitely be bringing it up with my manager and I will be refusing to work in the building if they don't satisfactorily answer me concerns.
