WESTERN VISAYAS โ€“ The Occupational Safety and Health Center - Regional Extension Unit 6, despite the current pandemic, continues to develop effective OSH campaigns, and dialogues to promote safety and health of workers in the region. With the use of social medial platforms, the unit has been effectually disseminating timely and relevant OSH information and programs to its clients in the locality. Strategically, the unitโ€™s Facebook page is being utilized effectively to propagate imperative announcements on technical services of the Occupational Safety and Health Center such as OSH training like facilitating weekly Basic OSH (BOSH) training for Safety Officer 1 in the Micro and Small Enterprises, and OSH accreditation such as current guidelines and procedures for OSH professionals.

Last July, the unit launched its program called, โ€œOSHChampions Stories.โ€ The program aimed to inspire Safety Officers who aspire to become DOLE-OSHC accredited OSH practitioners and consultants through social media. The program resulted to an increase in clientsโ€™ engagement to the unitโ€™s social media platforms. Wherein, the OSHC Region 6 Facebook followers rapidly increased from 5,000 followers last April, and currently has a 9,726 followers.

Through the Facebook page, clients can also view announcements of upcoming schedules of the BOSH Training for Safety Officer 1 for the month of October that will start on October 7-8, 14-15, 21-22, and 28-29. Also, these schedules will be available in the OSHC Region 6 blog site at: Interested participants may choose their preferred dates depending on their convenience and availability.

Amid the pandemic, the promotion of OSH is tantamount to protection and preservation of workersโ€™ lives. Sustainable promotion of OSH can lead to a productive, lively and dynamic business environment which will support the economic growth in Western Visayas.
