DOLE-QFO awards region’s first Safety Seal Certification to Quirino establishments

 

Quirino, Philippines — The Department of Labor and Employment-Quirino Field Office (DOLE-QFO) granted Safety Seal Certification to three establishments which have applied and complied with required Minimum Public Health Standards in accordance with existing COVID-19 pandemic protocols in an awarding conducted yesterday, June 30, 2021.

The awarding of the Safety Seal Certification was given to Phesco, Inc. located in Gamis, Saguday town along with its construction firm Disinaba Bridge Project located in Aurora West, Diffun, and the Quirino Electric Cooperative, Inc. located in Aurora East, Diffun town.

The field office’s designated Labor Inspectors and Safety Officers evaluated the application for certification of the three establishments earlier last month and were later found compliant with the required guidelines to be awarded with the Safety Seal.

DOLE-QFO Head Laura B. Diciano said that the seal symbolizes the massive efforts of the government and the general public in battling the pandemic.

This safety seal ensures consumers and visitors safety as well as promotes confidence when they see that establishments are awarded with the Safety Seal,” Diciano said.

She further explains that the commencement of the awarding of Safety Seal in Region 2 encourages other private establishments to perform health protocols and guarantee everyone’s safety as well as the field office’s commitment to provide efficient public service in the province.

The Safety Seal Certification Program is a voluntary certification scheme implemented through the partnership of various government agencies in compliance with the DOLE-DOH-DILG-DOT-DTI Joint Memorandum Circular No. 20-01 series of 2021. The program ensures that business premises follow the Minimum Public Health Standards mandated by the government to secure public safety.

The DOLE for its part issues the certification for businesses under manufacturing, construction sites, utilities, information and communication companies, and warehouses.

The Safety Seal is valid for six months and can be renewed thereafter. ###
