The campaign includes the posting and publishing of guiding materials as well as awareness raising through social media.
Training workshops will be organised for workers and employers at work sites and labour accommodations before and during the tournament, with the aim of introducing them to the most common inquiries and educating workers on how to avoid the work-associated risks to ensure their health and safety.
The launch of the joint awareness campaign comes within the framework of Qatar’s efforts to maintain a safe and secure work environment, and to raise awareness among employers and workers of the correct conditions that must be applied at work sites and accommodations.
The Ministry of Labour, in cooperation with the parties participating in the campaign, will implement continuous inspection campaigns on workplaces to ensure compliance with the required conditions.
