Abu Dhabi Executive Council has issued a circular to government organisations and companies, requesting controls and regulations to guarantee flexible office working hours for employees in bad weather conditions to ensure safety and avoid accidents.
“Guaranteeing the safety of employees is the top priority on the agenda of the Government of Abu Dhabi,” said Maj Gen Mohammed Al Romaithi, head of the security, justice, health and safety committee at the council.
The circular further requested coordination with concerned entities to identify bad weather conditions that may require organisations to warn their employees. It also called for raising awareness on the importance of avoiding being on the road during bad weather conditions and bad visibility and to give priority to external roads.
