Saned Stresses Importance of Stopping Outdoor Work During Summer Months

To ensure the safety and health of workers from exposure to various risks, in line with the decision of the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation

Saned Integrated Facilities Management Company, owned by Sharjah Asset Management Company the investment arm of the Government of Sharjah, stressed the importance of adhering to the decision of the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation, to begin banning work performed under the sun and outdoors, in light of recent extremely high temperatures. Engineer Sultan Al Ketbi, CEO of Saned, highlighted the decision to be effective during the noon hours of the summer months in the country, in order to ensure the safety and health of workers.

Al Ketbi said: “Saned Integrated Facilities Management Company is keen to take all preventative measures, follow all instructions and guidelines, and apply international standards in achieving occupational health and safety that protect workers from the risks of various injuries and occupational diseases that may occur during working hours. The health of our workers is, and always will be, our utmost priority in the company.”

Al Ketbi also noted the company’s training workshop initiative, to be held in order to educate and train workers on ways to protect themselves from exposure to work hazards. Additionally, circulars are to be published on the need to adhere to sound safety behaviours and guidelines, under directions of the occupational health and safety team in cooperation with operations teams in the field. Assessments of risk levels in work assigned by Saned will be regularly undertaken, followed by close inspection of the application of these standards in terms of worker safety.
