Penalize firms violating ban on ‘high noon’ work Heat-struck worker falls from height

KUWAIT CITY, June 14:  Head of the Foundations of Human Rights Society Dr Adel Al-Dhamkhi has stressed the need to conduct a thorough investigation on the alleged fall of a worker from the communications tower in Ahmadi when he suffered from heat stroke, reports Al-Qabas daily.

Al-Dhamkhi claimed some companies continue to violate the rights of workers, particularly the decision of the Social Affairs and Labor Ministry to prohibit working under the direct heat of the sun from 12:00 noon to 4:00 pm during summer.

He appealed to the concerned authorities to revise the mechanism for the implementation of the directive to ensure strict compliance.  He said those proven to have violated the rule must shoulder the medical expenses of their employees who get sick after working under the direct heat of the sun.

Meanwhile, a draft law is underway to separate the General Department of Criminal Investigation from the Ministry of Interior. The department will be joined to the General Department of Experts in Ministry of Justice to enjoy more autonomy to facilitate its supportive role of the judiciary, reports Al-Seyassah daily quoting MP Ali Al-Omair as saying.
