World Safety Day to be held on Labor Day

The DOLE-RO I and the Occupational Safety and Health Network of Region I (OSHNet-I) will convene over 100 safety practitioners and officers, private workers and DOLE-RO I employees for a series of activities in celebration of the World Day for Safety and Health at Work on May 1. 

“The promotion of safety and health at work will be one of the highlights of our Labor Day celebration,” DOLE-RO I Regional Director Nathaniel V. Lacambra said. 

He said the event will be a fun-filled approach to promoting, enhancing and instilling greater awareness and appreciation of the importance of occupational safety and health and to elicit the cooperation and support of workers, employers, professional groups and the general public in upgrading the quality of life in the workplace. 

A motorcade at 7:00 a.m. will start off activities; while an Emergency Preparedness Olympics at the Pacoy Ortega Gymnasium in San Fernando City will cap the whole event, the regional director said. 

“I laud the OSHNet-I which spearheaded the event, participating companies and DOLE employees who lent out their support,” he said.   

Anchored on the theme “Optimize the Collection and Use of OSH Data”, the event, which is celebrated every 28th day of April, underscores our country’s contribution to the implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 8 of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.  Goal 8 provides for the promotion of “inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all.” 

“As we always advocate at the DOLE, decent work must be safe work.  We all have our respective roles to perform, so together we must create an enabling environment, build each other’s capacities and share good practices on OSH to cultivate a culture of volunteerism and prevention,” Director Lacambra said. 

 

The OSHNet-I is led by its President, Engineer Johnny Agtarap II. END/Arly Sta. Ana-Valdez
