The programme focusses on the techniques of writing reports about civil surveys and inspection visits carried out by labour inspectors, Hatem Jumma Al Junaibi, Director of the Inspection Department at the ministry told Khaleej Times.

He said the training courses aim at brushing up the skills and capabilities of the inspectors, increasing their awareness about labour regulations and the decisions taken by the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs to better regulate the labour market.

The programme is also meant to brief the inspectors on their judicial powers concerning labour inspection and the various international conventions on labour issues, added Mr Al Junaibi.

He said the move comes in response to the directives issued by Dr Khalid Mohammed Al Khazraji, Under-Secretary of the ministry, and is aimed to develop national human resources in the ministry.

The programme is especially made for labour inspectors owing to their pivotal role in implementing the policies and plans of the ministry.

Mr Al Junaibi said that leading local experts in the field of labour will participate in the programme.

He said the idea is to secure a competency level for the labour inspectors so that they are able to cope up with the increasing demands of the growing national economy.
