Based on the Inter Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases Resolution No. 38 series of 2020, holding face-to-face occupational safety and health (OSH) Trainings are allowed in areas under the Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MGCQ).

“We are pleased that many areas have already graduated to MGCQ which is open to more activities including classroom or face-to-face OSH trainings, but as we all know, the threat of Covid-19 is still very much present so we must not let our guards down. We must continue to follow health protocols to keep us, our colleagues and families safe,” said Occupational Safety and Health Executive Director Noel C. Binag, C.E.

Participants in gatherings such as OSH trainings shall be limited to 50% of the seating capacity of the venue. The conduct of OSH trainings must also not contradict any existing ordinances of the Local Government Unit.

To ensure compliance to the abovementioned resolution, all DOLE-accredited safety training organizations must submit a detailed OSH training program together with the physical lay-out of their training venue prior to conducting face-to-face OSH trainings in areas under MGCQ. They must also seek the approval of their respective LGUs.
