TRAINING COURSES FOR WC WORKERS
Workers building stadiums for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar will soon begin a bespoke training programme designed to introduce them to life in Qatar, improve technical capabilities, enhance job performance, and increase productivity and safety.
The programme has been fostered by SC and Qatar International Safety Centre (QISC). SC recently signed a one-year partnership with QISC to pilot this training programme for workers currently engaged in World Cup 2022-related projects.
As part of the first phase rollout, workers will be offered a smooth transition into working and living in Qatar by being taught about basic knowledge such as how to use an ATM, learning key English and Arabic phrases, and how to get around Qatar. They will also receive refresher tutorials on health and safety standards, the SC's Workers' Welfare Standards, the SC's available grievance mechanisms, and other SC initiatives and programmes they can benefit from.
