Ministry of Labour: Dh10,000 fine and blacklist for companies not reporting occupational injuries

 DH10,000 FINE AND BLACKLIST FOR COMPANIES NOT REPORTING OCCUPATIONAL INJURIES

The Ministry of Labour has urged private sector companies to implement occupational safety and health standards while on duty and report workers occupational injuries without any delay.

Maher Al Obed, Assistant Under-Secretary for Inspectional Affairs, said, “The ministry’s keenness to provide a safe working environment for workers comes as support to avoid occupational injuries, and through the application of innovative standards for occupational safety and health in addition to taking the necessary steps against the non-complying facilities.”

He explained, “The facilities who don’t report occupational injuries, illness or deaths, are violating Cabinet Decision No. 40 of 2014, which states that an Dh 10,000 fine per (non-reported) case is applicable, and the Ministry of Labour shall blacklist the company until the offense is resolved.”
