Tradies across Sydney are set to put down their tools as the temperature soars close to 40C.

The dangerous working conditions in the heat come as Sydney experiences temperatures in the high 30s - with the CBD reaching 37C and it hitting 38C in Penrith.

Construction, Forestry, Maritime, Mining and Energy Union (CFMEU) policy states that temperatures hitting over 35C should see workers moved to a cooler area or stop work.

There is also a total fire ban in place across the state due to the dry and windy conditions forecast.
