Oman’s Labour Ministry has announced additional Omanisation rules for occupational health and safety supervisors. Under these, owners of entities which employ at least 50 employees must appoint an Omani occupational safety and health supervisor. These supervisors must be trained and qualified by the facility for this work which includes preparing an appropriate occupational safety and health plan for the entity. They will also have to work with specialists on health and safety training programmes for employees and periodically inspect all the entity’s workplaces and employee accommodation. Other tasks will include carrying out inspections and investigations when there are serious accidents and work injuries at the entity.
