โ€œThis is our way of giving assistance to the industries because of the effects of the pandemic. This training is in compliance with RA 11058. Wherein, every establishment shall have a safety officer. We hope that this is not merely for compliance but will inculcate a culture of safety and health as a way of life,โ€ said Evelyn C. Tandayu, Chief of OSHC-Environment Control Division.

The course includes learning sessions that will develop the expertise of the promising safety officers on OSH basic concepts and principles towards compliance with the OSH Standards. The program also comprises the 2-hr trainersโ€™ training, giving participants the confidence to be effective trainers in delivering OSH topics for their fellow workers.

โ€œWe will have five more free batches for this calendar year. We will also be conducting free 40-hr Construction Safety and Health (COSH) training very soon. At the same time, we are continuously conducting free SO1 training every month. We are committed to making OSHCโ€™s #Vision1Million a reality here in Western Visayas,โ€ OSHC-Region 6 OIC Melveen M. Melocoton stated.
