Construction sector in Dubai is well developed and organised with government forming strict guidelines and regulations not only for the safety and health of the workers but also for the smooth functioning and steady growth of the sector.
The government has taken the safety and health of the workers associated with construction activities seriously and has formulated a set of guidelines under the Department of Planning and Development – Trakhees in 2008. Trakhees regulates ports, Free Zone Corporation and customs in Dubai and undertake the responsibility of issuance of building permits and commercial license, engineering supervision and supervision of health, safety and environment issues within the Special Development Zone in Dubai.
Trakhees formulated a separate team under EHS construction, which oversees the monitoring, regulation and enforcement of health, environmental and safety standards in all construction projects in Dubai. The team comprises health and safety experts with a wide range of knowledge and skills in construction works.
As the government promotes occupational safety among employees, several public sector enterprises in Dubai insist that workers are well informed and educated on safety and health standards, and international practices to be followed at their work places.
Being in the education sector for several years, Green World Group has been training industrial workers and students in Dubai on various types of hazards and health issues at work places and prepares them to lead a safe and healthy life.
