Rain in UAE

In response to the persistent rainfall across the UAE, private sector companies have been urged to maintain flexible working arrangements on February 13, according to a statement issued by the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation on Monday.

The directive emphasizes the importance of prioritizing the health and safety of employees, particularly those involved in outdoor work activities. Companies are advised to implement necessary measures to ensure compliance with occupational health and safety standards, including the provision of suitable working conditions and safe commuting arrangements.


Meanwhile, in Dubai, government employees are set to continue remote work for another day on Tuesday, February 13, 2024. This decision follows directives from Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, aiming to mitigate the potential risks associated with the inclement weather conditions.

The remote work advisory encompasses all government employees in Dubai, with exceptions made for personnel whose roles require on-site presence.

Additionally, in light of the ongoing adverse weather conditions, the UAE’s educational authority has announced the extension of distance learning in all government schools on February 13. The Emirates Education Foundation made the decision with the safety of students and faculty as the primary consideration.

The continuation of flexible work arrangements and remote learning initiatives underscores the UAE’s commitment to safeguarding the well-being of its workforce and educational community amidst challenging weather conditions.
