MANILA - Labor Assistant Secretary Dr. Ma. Teresita S. Cucueco, CESO III, officially started yesterday as the new agency head of the Occupational Safety and Health Center (OSHC), replacing Executive Director Noel C. Binag, CE, MPA. The swift turnover ceremony of the OSHC Flag was done at the Conference Room, OSHC, North Avenue corner Agham Road, Diliman, Quezon City.
We thank Executive Director Noel C. Binag for his passion and dedication to expanding the programs and services of the OSHC to all regions. Thus, the creation and mass hiring of more regional extension units in the country. Also, for pushing the Vision1Million program of the OSHC that led to the capacity-building of thousands of establishments and OSH advocates through free virtual BOSH and COSH training. The OSHC implemented the program to raise further awareness, understanding, and passion for OSH among Filipinos. And increasing the number of OSH advocates will help achieve decent work and accident and illness-free workplaces in the Philippines.
We wish the former Executive Director Binag good luck with a new life chapter and the new Executive Director Cucueco best endeavors in the attainment of the vision and mission of the OSHC towards making OSH not mere compliance but every Filipino's way of life.
