Labour and Social Development Minister, Jameel bin Mohammed Ali Humaidan, today issued a circular to all training institutions stipulating the basic precautionary requirements that training facilities must meet when they resume work.
The minister affirmed that the gradual resumption of the training process aims to achieve the public interest, given its importance in the investment in human resources.
The circular stated that the owners of training institutions, members of the administrative and training staff and all trainees must adhere to the Health Ministry’s directives to prevent the risks of the spread of the coronavirus.
Under the circular, the temperatures of all employees, training staff, and the trainees shall be measured on a daily basis, and those whose temperature exceeds 37.5 will not be allowed in.
The precautionary measures also include sterilising all common tools and facilities before and after use, ensuring social distancing, and limiting the number of trainees to 10 persons per class, providing face masks and preventing snacks and drinks to the trainees while they are at the facility.
The circular also encouraged the continuation of virtual training since it is the best option during these exceptional circumstances.
