3 construction projects receive safety seal certificates from DOLE today

Cebu City, Philippines. Three (3) construction projects today received their Safety Seal Certificates from the Department of Labor and Employment.

DOLE-7 Regional Director Salome O. Siaton personally awarded their certificates during the ceremonial awarding held today at the MDC Solinea Tower Project, Cebu Business Park, Cebu City.

Awardees included The Alcoves located on Luzon Avenue, Cebu Business Park, Mabolo, Cebu City; Avida Towers Riala Tower 4 located at JM Del Mar corner India St., I.T. Park, Lahug, Cebu City; and Solinea Tower 4 located on Negros Road, Cebu Business Park, Cebu City. All of which are projects of the Makati Development Corporation (MDC).

Speaking before the awardees, Director Siaton underscored the importance and value of a Safety Seal Certificate, saying further that, “The issuance of a Safety Seal Certificate is proof that you are not only compliant to the Occupational Safety and Health Standards but also to the Minimum Public Health Standards.”

Being issued with the certificate, she continued, would demonstrate that all safety protocols especially the installation and institutionalization of a Contact Tracing Application is in place in the workplace.

“With this, all your workers, clients and stakeholders will find it safe and secure to work and transact with you knowing that your contractors are also compliant with the law and with the minimum public health standards as provided for under the DTI, DOT, the LGUs and DILG Joint Memorandum Circular No. 21-01, Series of 2021 or the Implementing Guidelines of the Safety Seal Certification Program,” added the Regional Head in addressing the MDC.

Said construction projects are the latest additions to the pool of Safety Seal Certificate Awardees in Region-7. “Being in the construction and a high risk industry, they came in second to the Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX) Project by Cebu Link Joint Venture to have been issued with a Safety Seal Certificate,” she added.

Last 23 June 2021, DOLE, together with DTI, DOT and DILG awarded the Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX) Project by Cebu Link Joint Venture and several other establishments falling under their respective jurisdiction with Safety Seal Certificates.

Five days later, DOLE awarded some thirteen (13) Philippine Economic Zone Authority-Mactan Economic Zone (PEZA-MEZ) registered export enterprises with Safety Seal Certificates.

The Safety Seal Certificates must be displayed at the main entrance of the concerned establishments and should be surrendered to the DOLE upon expiry or in the event that they are revoked.
