In a bid to push for work style reforms at construction sites, Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism Minister Keiichi Ishii said Friday his ministry will set schedules for most of its construction projects so that workers will be given two days off per week, starting in the fiscal year from April.

The land ministry hopes that its efforts to give additional leeway in the schedules of construction projects will spread to local governments and the private sector in orders for their own construction projects, ministry officials said.

“To correct long work hours, it is important to establish a system of two days off per week in the construction industry, which is already the norm for other sectors,” Ishii told a press conference.
