Inspections ongoing to ensure compliance with ban on noon-work
Official Spokesperson and Director of Public Relations and Media Department at the Public Authority for Manpower Aseel Al-Mazyad says the afternoon work team at the National Center for Occupational Health and Safety will continue with inspection tours of work sites in open places in all regions until the end of this month.
In a press statement, she said she hopes business owners and companies are abiding by the decision to ban work in open places from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm in order to preserve the safety and health of workers and to avoid being exposed to legal violations.
Al-Mazyad indicated that the authority, since the start of the implementation of the work ban decision during noon time from June beginning, received via its WhatsApp service a total of 59 reports about the presence of workers in exposed places.
She revealed that six citations were issued by monitoring 375 violating workers registered on 266 companies in 161 locations that were covered by inspection tours, and warnings were issued to first-time violators.
