A total of 36 companies have applied for a safety seal certificate
According to a labor official, 36 firms have sought for a safety seal certificate thus far.
“We have 36 (businesses) who have shown an interest, and we are inspecting them. We’ll see whether they’re compliant in the next days so we can award the safety seal,” Labor Assistant Secretary Ma. Teresita Cucueco told Laging Handa.
The certification is only valid for six months, according to Cucueco.
“There’s a reason for this: following an inspection, the institution normally relaxes. Consumers may have faith in the safety seal. As a result, the attempt to comply should be present. They may renew in six months if they are still compliant, and if they are, they will be awarded another six months of validity,” she said.
Meanwhile, she stressed that businesses that have received a safety seal certificate should continue to follow safety regulations.
The public may call the Department of Labor and Employment’s hotline 1349 to report infractions of safety rules.
In the midst of the coronavirus epidemic, private enterprises carrying the safety seal certificate have been discovered to be following minimal health measures.
“If I have a choice between two places, if one has a certification and the other doesn’t, I’ll choose the one with the seal,” Cucueco continued.
Physical separation and the use of a contact-tracing program, such as the StaySafe.PH program, are among the procedures.
Keep yourself safe.
The Interagency Task Force on Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases and the National Task Force Against Covid-19 have approved PH as the country’s official health condition reporting, contact tracing, and social distancing system.
