During the weekly Cabinet meeting, a ministerial decision prepared by the Ministry of Administrative Development, Labor and Social Affairs to replace Resolution no. 16 for the year 2007 of the Minister of Civil Service Affairs and Housing, regarding limiting the working hours in open workplaces during the summer was approved.
The project has been prepared with the aim of tightening control over the requirements and specifications of health and safety at work in open spaces that are exposed to high temperatures that can cause heat and health stress.
The project included a number of provisions, including limiting working hours for jobs performed under the sun or in open workplaces during the period from June 1 to Sept. 15 annually, and prohibiting work from 10 am to 3:30 pm.
This will replace the previous working hours set by the Ministry in open workplaces, which prohibits work after 11:30 in the morning, and stipulates that working hours do not start in the evening period before 3 pm during the period from Jun. 15 to Aug. 31 every year.
