The DOLE-RO I launched its joint assessments following the issuance of a Work Stoppage Order by Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III for establishments engaged in the manufacture and sale of pyrotechnics and firecrackers on November 24.
Regional Director Henry John Jalbuena said the purpose of the assessments is to ensure that covered establishments comply with occupational safety and health standards (OSH), including General Labor Standards (GLS).
“We want to avoid accidents because the health and safety of our workers is non-negotiable,” Director Jalbuena said.
The regional director said that if the assessed establishments are found to be compliant with OSH and GLS, he shall recommend the lifting of the Order to the Labor Chief.
“On the other hand, workers who might be affected by the Order will be provided with appropriate DOLE services such as alternative livelihood or job referral,” he added.
The joint assessments are conducted in coordination with local government units, Philippine National Police and Bureau of Fire Protection. END/Arly Sta. Ana-Valdez
