DUBAI: The UAE’s midday break for outdoor workers during summer will start on June 15 and last until Sept. 15, the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratization has announced.

Outdoor workers are mandated to take a break from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. — with work performed under direct sunlight and in open-air areas across the UAE banned during those times — to protect them from occupational hazards and injuries related to the extreme summer heat, the ministry announcement said.
