Head of the Follow-up and Inspection Department for Occupational Health and Safety Mansour Al-Mutairi said in a press statement that today’s round is the final for the midday work committee inspection team, which has been working since the beginning of last June until the end of August. He stated that the administrative decision (535/2015) prohibits the employment of workers in open areas at noon from 11 am to 4 pm due to high temperatures, indicating that Kuwait has signed international agreements on human rights, and this decision confirms its humanitarian role.

He pointed out that a notice will be issued to violators and to re-inspect them again on Monday, and the worker will be punished if he is in the same place, and the violation will be referred to the Investigation Department to take the necessary legal measures. (KUNA)
