The ban on outdoor afternoon work will end next Monday, 31st August 2020, as announced by the Labour and Social Development Ministry through its official website and social media accounts.

It is noteworthy that the annual ban, prohibiting outdoor work from midday until 4 pm during July and August, aims to safeguard workers’ health, ensure their safety against heat exhaustion and sunstroke as well as prevent summer-related diseases and to reduce occupational incidents in view of the increasing temperatures and humidity.
