DOLE 2 conducts COSH training; fortifies workplace safety and health

TUGUEGARAO CITY, Cagayan --- Some sixty-four (64) individuals participated in the Construction Occupational Safety and Health (COSH) training conducted by the Occupational Safety and Health Center (OSHC) in partnership with the Department of Labor and Employment – Region 2 (DOLE 2) and the Cagayan Valley Occupational Safety and Network (CVOSHNet), held at Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya earlier this month.

The participants were owners, supervisors, and skilled workers of hardware and construction companies, private individuals engaged in the construction industry, and educators from the academe.

According to DOLE 2 Regional Director Atty. Sarah Buena S. Mirasol, the training aims to equip participants with the basic knowledge and skills in performing safety audits and developing and implementing Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) policies and programs.

“COSH trainings focus on Occupational Safety, Importance of Safety, Tool Box meeting, Unsafe Acts, Unsafe Conditions, Environmental Safety, Occupational Health, Accident Investigation, Job Hazards Analysis and a practical application under the Site Visit Inspection module,” Atty. Mirasol said.

She further underscored that the participants, upon completing the course, could already represent their company’s need for a Safety Officer and may be considered to be full-fledged Safety Practitioners should they pass the process of accreditation by the OSHC.

COSH is one of the mandatory 40-hour training courses required for safety officers working in the construction industry under Rule 1030 of the Occupational Safety and Health Standards (OSHS) and the DOLE Department Order No. 13, s. 1998: Guidelines Governing Safety and Health in the Construction Industry. This undertaking also strengthens each company’s compliance to the requirements of RA 110581, otherwise known as “An Act Strengthening Compliance with OSHS Mandates.”

Those interested in the training are encouraged to secure reservations for their slots since only the first fifty (50) registrants will be accommodated. Further, a maximum of (2) participants per company can join each batch to enable the OSHC to serve and reach out to as many companies as possible. A training fee of P5, 500.00 will be collected for the meals, training manuals and materials, and certificates of completion. (END/JVP/RBE)
