The campaign also targets all engineers, consultants, supervisors, workers, and contracting and engineering consulting companies in Dubai. The campaign aims to safeguard individuals working at construction sites, reduce the number of accidents, dangers, and injuries, and improve adherence to safety regulations and norms to ensure a secure working environment.
Dubai Municipality's efforts support the organisation's ambitious objectives of creating an innovative, sustainable, and cutting-edge construction sector in Dubai.
Dubai Municipality stated that it had adopted numerous measures to ensure and achieve the highest safety standards, following the guidelines highlighted in the 'Code of Construction Safety Practice'. Most notable among these are the implementation of 35,672 field surveillance visits on around 14,858 construction sites during this year.
The Municipality conducted a fake evacuation activity in the Wasl area as part of the campaign, which simulated a hypothetical situation that might occur on a construction site. The overarching goal of this fake eviction was to determine the speed, efficiency and potential of official and internal authorities in swiftly responding to these instances.
In addition to conducting worker medical examinations, Dubai Municipality also carried out several awareness seminars, lectures, and workshops under the 'Safety Tent Activity' in Jebel Ali and Muhaisnah, which was launched as part of the campaign activities. This aimed at enhancing awareness among construction site workers about security and safety requirements.
