World Cup 2022 CEO: ‘Death is a natural part of life’ after another worker reportedly dies at site in Qatar

Qatar has opened a work safety investigation into the death of a worker following claims that a Filipino man died at a training facility during the soccer World Cup, which has been marred by criticism over the treatment of migrant workers.InformationGuideNigeria

Nasser Al Khater, Chief Executive of the 2022 World Cup in Doha, confirmed that a worker died but did not provide details, saying that “death is a natural part of life” and offered sympathies to his family.

“Death is a natural part of life, whether it’s at work, whether it’s in your sleep,” Khater said, voicing disappointment at journalists’ questions about The Athletic report.

“We’re in the middle of a World Cup. And we have a successful World Cup. And this is something you want to talk about right now?” he said.

“Of course, a worker died – our condolences go to his family.

“However, you know, I mean it’s strange that this is something you want to focus on as your first question.”

“If the investigation concludes that safety protocols were not followed, the company will be subject to legal action and severe financial penalties,” another Qatar government official said in a statement when contacted by Reuters.

“The rate of work-related accidents has consistently declined in Qatar since strict health and safety standards were introduced and enforcement has been stepped up,” the official said.JAMB Portal

Human rights groups have scrutinized Qatar’s treatment of migrant workers, who make up the majority of the Gulf Arab state’s population, with increasing vigilance since 2010, when the country was awarded World Cup hosting rights.

The tournament, the first to be held in the Middle East, where other countries have also been criticized for migrant worker rights, has been mired in controversy, with soccer stars and European officials criticizing Qatar’s human rights record, including on labour, LGBT+, and women’s rights.

Qatar’s World Cup organizers, the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy, stated in a statement that it was not involved in the Qatari investigation because “the deceased was a contractor who was not under the SC’s jurisdiction.”

A Qatari government official said in a statement: “The incident is being investigated by the Qatari authorities.

“If the investigation concludes that safety protocols were not followed, the company will be subject to legal action and severe financial penalties.

“Compensation is paid through the workers’ support and insurance fund when a worker has been injured or passed away due to a work-related incident, or when an employer is unable to pay salaries.

“Over 350 million US dollars have been paid out through the fund this year.JAMB Result

“The rate of work-related accidents has consistently declined in Qatar since strict health and safety standards were introduced and enforcement has been stepped up through regular on-site inspections.”
