Heat Policy For Older Market Traders

Traders are reminded that a policy exists to protect older traders from extreme heat conditions at the Queen Vic Market.

Traders 65 and over are exempted from being required to attend the market on days where the temperature is forecast to be 36C or over.

Temperatures of or above 36C will be defined by the weather forecast delivered on the 6pm news and weather or radio program as the predicted weather for the Melbourne area.

Traders are still required to notify the office of their intended absence through the normal channels and no later than 7am on the day of the absence.

Traders seeking further clarification are advised to contact a Market Officer or their Category Manager.
