A. Health Requirements: No owner, lessee, manager or superintendent of any store, factory, workshop or other place where persons are employed shall cause or permit such place, or any room or part thereof, to be overcrowded or inadequate or faulty in respect to light, ventilation, heat or cleanliness.
B. Sanitation: All such places of employment shall be kept in a clean condition, free from the effluvia of a sewer, drain, privy, stable or other nuisance; also as far as practicable, such premises shall be free from all gases, vapors, dust or other impurities generated by manufacturing processes or otherwise which are injurious to health. Sufficient washroom facilities for male and female employees shall be provided and such facilities shall be properly ventilated.
C. Heating Required: It shall be the duty of every person owning or controlling the heating plant which furnishes heat to any factory or workshop, to maintain a temperature within such factory or workshop at not less than sixty eight degrees Fahrenheit (68°F) without such undue restriction of ventilation as to interfere with proper sanitary conditions therein; provided, however, that this requirement shall not apply to any factory or workshop where the business conducted therein is of such a nature that a higher or lower temperature than sixty eight degrees Fahrenheit (68°F) is necessary or expedient for the work or manufacturing processes of such business.
D. Inspection: The Lake County health department and the building commissioner shall visit or cause to be visited all such places of employment in the village as often as they shall deem necessary to assure compliance with the provisions of this section, and to have such arrangements made as may be deemed necessary for the health and safety of the employees.
