“(But) every year the health and safety standards on the sites are improving, at least on our sites, the World Cup sites, the ones we are responsible for. Most definitely to the extent that you have trade unions (commending) the work that has been done on World Cup sites and the improvement.”

A Qatari government official confirmed the incident was being investigated to The Athletic and noted that compensation would be paid to the worker’s family. They said: “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. “More than $350million has been paid out through the fund this year.

“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.”
