Construction firm fined for negligence in Pearl-Qatar worker’s death

A criminal court in Qatar has found a local company guilty of negligence and violating safety regulations after a worker fell to his death from an under-construction tower at the Pearl-Qatar last year.

The Nepali man worked for Redco Al Mana, which is building two towers for the island’s Abraj Quartier district. That area will eventually consist of 200 waterfront townhouses and seven residential towers – two of which form the “gateway” to the Pearl, according to Redco’s website.

The company was fined QR100,000 ($27,448) over the death, and its head of safety and security was also convicted in the case and fined QR10,000 ($2,744).

Redco and the manager were also ordered to pay QR200,000 ($54,896) in blood money to the victim’s family.
