(viii) Shops Act, 1950.
(a) Inspections.
1,070 shops have been inspected and recorded on the Register.
Altogether 4,351 Inspections and observations have been made for
various purposes under the Act during the year.
The following contraventions were noted:—
Failure to exhibit prescribed notices 214
Failure to keep records 39
Conditions of employment 9
Arrangements for Health and Welfare 34
Other matters 9
Under the heading of Conditions of employment, four employers
were found to be employing persons under the age of 18 years for more
than the maximum hours laid down in the Act. It is essential, therefore,
that frequent routine visits be made to places where young persons are
employed to ensure that records of hours worked are properly kept.
