UAE to offer free health services to construction workers

Construction-Workers-UAEThe UAE authorities have decided for improving the health conditions of construction workers engaged in various project sites in the country by offering them free mobile health services. The move of the Emirates Mobile Hospital is aimed to enhance their occupational health and providing them advice and medicines without any fees.

The official news agency WAM reported that the mobile units would visit all construction sites besides conducting regular inspection of the health of workers. Khadim Al Dari, Chairman of the Emirates World Humanitarian Mobile Hospital Working Committee said that these measures would help checking the diseases on early stages and mitigate the chances of further spreading the disease.

Al Dari said that workers can access the units for availing the health services and tips from qualified health experts. The mobile units would also promote health consciousness among the construction workers and thus improve their work efficiency to deliver their best.

Al Dari said that workers from other services would also be covered under government sponsored health services. He thanked authorities concerned for their support to materialize the idea of mobile health services.
