Call for GCC Factories Community to be Involved

The Noise-Induced Hearing Loss 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 will need to implement the provisions of 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.
