Bahrain’s Resolution No. 84 of 2019 was issued by the Minister of Labor and Social Development prohibiting the employment of pregnant women in a number of hazardous environments. In particular, the resolution prohibits exposure to extreme heat, continuous physical exertion, harmful vibrations, exposure to radiation, exposure to bacterial infections, and exposure to certain hazardous materials. It also requires employers to take necessary measures to protect the health of pregnant women and their unborn children when there may be a danger to them as a result of the work performed by the employee.

Comment

Employers may want to carry out a review of their workplace health and safety procedures and policies to ensure compliance with Resolution No. 84 of 2019.
