Article 1



Health and safety Poor standards of accommodation

Article 1 sets out the employer’s obligation to provide workers with suitable accommodation outside of the construction area,  if so required by the type of work or by the work status at the construction area.


Art. 13 provides the penalty for infringement of this provision, and empowers the Minister of Civil Service and Housing Affairs to suspend the employer’s dossier at the Ministry —  which presumably means putting their transactions with the government entity on hold.
