Weather: Higher levels of dust in the atmospere today

With higher levels of dust in Cypriot skies today, the Department of Labour Inspection recommends avoiding open spaces, especially if belonging to any of the more vulnerable population groups. Employers are also required to take appropriate measures (organizational and technical), as they assess the risks to employees. In addition, it is recommended for workers to use appropriate personal protective equipment.
