KUWAIT CITY, May 28: The Public Authority for Manpower said it is in no mood to be lenient or turn a blind eye to those who violate the Administrative Decision No. 535/2015 which requires employers not to force their workers in the open areas under the direct sunlight effective from June 1 until end of August, reports Al-Jarida daily. The decision, which was issued in 2015, is binding on all employers to ensure no workers are made to work from 11:00 am and 4:00 pm.

The PAM sources stressed that it will not tolerate violators of the decision, and explained that the inspection teams will follow up on its implementation over a period of three months, through surprise campaigns on work sites to monitor any violations and take legal measures against business owners, stressing that the decision aims to protect workers from the scorching sun during the summer season.

The decision calls for organizing working hours and not reducing them, while making sure that projects that are being implemented do not suffer as a result of the decision. The sources added, “Working in open areas during this period of the year is difficult due to the harsh climatic conditions, which make it difficult to work as during other times of the year,” noting that implementation of the decision during the past years was accepted and appreciated by companies operating in various sectors taking into account the public interest and in line with Kuwait’s obligations to implement international labor standards at noon hours.
