The Ministry of Administrative Development, Labour and Social Affairs (MADLSA) has issued violation reports against two companies in the Al Wakra area for not complying with rules regarding the wearing of face masks by workers.

In a statement, the ministry said it has referred officials of the two companies to the security authorities for necessary measures, as reported by the official Qatar News Agency on Wednesday.

This comes within the framework of the ministry's inspection campaigns, carried out in co-operation with the competent authorities in the country to ensure that companies adhere to the necessary precautionary measures to limit the spread of Covid-19.

In the statement, the MADLSA said the two companies violated work-related directives and the decisions that obligate all workers to wear masks while on duty.

The ministry has stressed the need to adhere to the relevant decision and ensure its implementation.

In the event of non-compliance, the penalties stipulated in Decree Law No 17 of 1990 on protection from infectious diseases will be applied to the violator by imprisonment for a period not exceeding three years and a fine not of up to QR 200,000, or one of the two penalties, the QNA report adds.
