55 labor inspectors undergo online BOSH Training in Tuguegarao City


Tuguegarao City - As part of DOLE R02’s learning and development program, a total of fifty-five (55) Foreign National Labor Inspectors (FNLIs) and newly promoted Labor Inspectors (LI) finished the prerequisite 40 hours Basic Occupational Safety and Health (BOSH) training for Labor Inspectors as a qualification to undergo the next course under the Labor Inspectorate Training. 


OSH is an important part of our work in DOLE because a compromise may result to work-related accidents, deaths and illnesses. It must be implemented properly to create a safer and healthier workplace for the employees and workers,” Regional Director Joel M. Gonzales said during his opening message. 


Further, Occupational Safety and Health Center (OSHC) Deputy Executive Director Engr. Concepcion T. Sto. Tomas stated that the training “…will increase the knowledge of FNLIs and LIs that will aid in one of their functions as labor inspectors.”


The participants were equipped with adequate knowledge on OSH and deepened their understanding on its concepts for an efficient and effective inspection and monitoring of private establishments.


Modules and topics included the BOSH Framework, Hazards Identification, Risk Assessment and Control Measures, Accident Investigation, OSH Legislation and a session on Training of Trainers.


The BOSH training was conducted virtually in response to the new normal setting and approach brought by the COVID-19 pandemic. 


The utilized online learning platform had break-out rooms and virtual workshops and assignments. It was presented and delivered by resource persons from OSHC and invited guests from the Employees Compensation Commission (ECC) and the DOLE RO2’s Labor Standards (LS) Unit.


For his closing message, Assistant Regional Director Jesus Elpidio Atal, Jr. stressed out that OSH must be given equal importance during inspection alongside compliance to general labor standards. He challenged the participants to be an OSH advocate and that OSH must be part of their day-to day activity and make it a way of life, be it in the office, during fieldwork and at home, creating a safer and healthier environment. ###
