A midday break for outdoor workers begins on Thursday of this week.

From Thursday, 15th June, working outside in direct sunlight is banned between 12.30pm and 3pm to protect labourers from the intense summer heat.

Seven patrols will inspect construction sites and violators could be fined at the rate of AED 5,000 per worker, up to a maximum of AED 50,000 if a large numbers of workers are involved.

The Standing Committee for Labour Affairs in the Emirate of Dubai announced the ruling, which will stay in force until 15th September.
