Call for the GCC Factories community to be involved

The Lead Regulations are part of the GCC Factories OHS Act exam. We are also directly affected by the regulations since we are current and future GMR 2.1 appointees who must implement these regulations.

This is an opportunity to be a part of policy formulation, ensure that regulations are fit for purpose, and address workplace risks from our perspective as engineers and technicians.

Palucraft encourages you to review the document and submit comments where necessary changes need to be made.
