The UAE’s ban on most construction work during the hottest part of the day over summer will start on June 15, according to government statements.

The Standing Committee for Labour Affairs in Dubai said the mandatory midday break will run until September 15, 2017, meaning that construction firms cannot have workers operating in exposed places or under direct sunlight during the afternoons.

In a statement on WAM, a senior government official said that afternoon break will run from 12:30PM through to 3PM daily. He added that there would be regular checks carried out to ensure that companies were following the law.

“The committee will conduct seven patrols. There will be three inspectors in each patrol, representing the labour committee, the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation and Dubai Municipality to ensure full enforcement of the midday ban as per regulations in this respect,” said Major General Obaid Muhair Bin Surour, deputy director of the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs in Dubai, and chairman of the Standing Committee for Labour Affairs in the Emirate.

He added that the decision would ensure the protection of the workers, while also providing a safe working environment, as well as occupational safety for them during their work.
