The Abu Dhabi City Municipality (ADM) has revealed that it has issued a total of 66 offences relating to workers' accommodation in construction sites at Al Wathba South.

ADM said in a statement that the offences were issued as part of an ongoing inspection campaign, which it launched on 8 October.

The campaign targets construction sites in Al Wathba South to verify the implementation of the standards governing urban appearance, as well as the security and safety of the residents of the workers' quarters.

According to ADM, the campaign aimed to review the compliance of supervisors and the availability of permits from the parties concerned with the implementation of workers' quarters at construction sites.

ADM pointed out that the campaign is based on Law No (16) for 2009, which governs building works, with Article No (2) providing for the issuance of a fine of $2,723 (AED10,000).

The violations spotted in workers' quarters include the lack of compliance with not only safety and security stipulations but also cleaning and health requirements, among others.

ADM also noted that it has issued a resolution requiring firms employing large numbers of workers to provide a list of the names of their workers and technicians, as well as supporting documents that prove that they are being housed in allocated accommodations.

The fulfilment of this requirement is reportedly a precondition for the authentication of contracts, building permits, and land applications, among other municipal services.
