    Shafaq News/ On Saturday, the International Labor Organization called on the Iraqi government to take effective steps to determine working hours and organize awareness campaigns about heat stress, with the aim of mitigating the impact of the significant rise in temperatures.
    The organization's country coordinator in Iraq, Maha Qataa, explained, in a statement received by Shafaq News Agency, that Iraq is one of the countries most affected by climate change in the Arab region. The organization stressed the importance of updating the legal framework related to occupational safety and health, and developing the necessary procedures to protect workers from extremely high temperatures during the summer.
    The sector stressed that the Iraqi government must publish accurate information about the risks associated with heat stress, reinforce the importance of preventive measures, and encourage employers to provide training to workers on managing heat stress and ways to deal with it.
    The organization added that workers in exposed sectors such as construction and agriculture are among the most vulnerable groups, as temperatures can rise to levels exceeding fifty degrees Celsius, causing serious health effects.
    In a related context, the organization indicated that the Iraqi Labor Law and instructions related to occupational safety and health provide the necessary legal framework to protect workers from occupational risks, and define the responsibilities of the government and companies in this field.
    The International Labor Organization concluded its call to the Iraqi government and all concerned partners to work together to implement the necessary measures to protect the health and safety of workers in light of the increasing challenges related to heat stress in work environments.
    According to the International Labor Organization, “heat stress” means that the temperature reaches a level that exceeds what the body can tolerate, which usually occurs at temperatures exceeding 35 degrees Celsius, in a climate with high humidity.
    Excessive heat during work poses a risk to occupational health, as it limits the functions and physical capabilities of workers and their ability to work and thus harms productivity, and in severe cases, it can cause sunstroke, which may be fatal.
