Abu Dhabi Airports has rolled out its ‘Beat the Heat’ campaign.
The campaign highlights how staff and contractors can cope with extreme weather conditions over the summer.
The company is holding lectures in Arabic, English, Urdu and Hindi, and displaying multi lingual posters and dehydration awareness charts, to equip workers with all information they need to be able to understand and recognize heat related issues and safeguard against them.
The sessions highlight importance of workers taking more breaks in extreme humidity, drinking water frequently, monitoring their own physical condition and that of their co-workers, and wearing light-colored, loose-fitting and breathable clothing in fabrics such as cotton.
Safety bulletins on mandatory health and safety requirements are also being issued to all participants, along with sun hats, water bottles, neck cooling bandanas, sweat bands and protective arm sleeves.
The awareness sessions are being delivered by the Gulf Centre for Aviation Studies (GCAS) and are being held at Abu Dhabi International Airport, Al Ain International Airport and Al Bateen Executive Airport.
