The awareness drive is aimed at controlling the spread of Covid-19 by improving health conditions, and precautionary measures in the industrial and commercial areas.

More than 300,000 workers from about 6,000 companies are now better aware of anti-Covid measures, thanks to the campaign initiated by the Labour Standards Development Authority (LSDA) in Sharjah.

The awareness drive was aimed at enhancing protection, health and safety procedures for workers, companies and employers in the industrial and commercial areas of the emirate. It is also aimed at controlling the spread of Covid-19 by improving health conditions, and precautionary measures in these areas.

"We have been implementing the campaign and fixing awareness posters and roll-ups written in several languages at workers' accommodations, factories, restaurants shops and all utilities commonly used by workers," said Salem Yousef Al Qaseer, chairman of the LSDA.

In addition to the new campaign, the authority continues to implement the SMS messages campaigns containing prevention guidelines against the virus are sent directly to the phones of workers and employers in their various languages - English, Urdu, Pashto, Filipino, and Bengali to name a few.
