DOLE-RO I eyes 2,010 companies for inspection in 2020


Intent on ensuring stricter compliance with labor laws, the DOLE-RO I is geared to inspect 2,010 companies in the region this year. 

This was the pronouncement of Regional Director Nathaniel V. Lacambra during the Yearend Performance Assessment cum Capacity Building for Labor Inspectors on January 22-23 at the Noble Tower Resort, Luna, la Union. 

Director Lacambra said the priority industries to be covered are those: engaged in contracting/subcontracting, with on-going construction projects, employing child laborers and foreign nationals, especially Philippine Offshore Gaming Operators (POGOs). 

“You are urged to exercise caution and observe the highest standards of conduct expected of government officials and employees in carrying out your functions,” Director Lacambra said as he addressed the labor inspectors. 

The Regional Director pitched for the importance of having a system for the analysis of inspection reports, saying it will be useful in identifying strengths, weaknesses and areas for improvement of the Inspection Program. 

He likewise reminded the participants to be more thorough in enforcing Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) laws, citing the significant number of violators who were fined in a span of three months in 2019. 

Last year, the DOLE-RO I was able to inspect 2,335 establishments, 17% higher than its target of 1,994.  Of the number, 1,463 are micro establishments. On the other hand, 818 are small, while 28 and 26 enterprises fall under the medium and large classifications, respectively. END/Arly Sta. Ana-Valdez with report from TSSD
