“With the issuance of the Joint Memorandum Circular No. 1 series of 2020 or the Guidelines on Occupational Safety and Health Standards for the Public Sector, it is pertinent that we inform workers in government agencies on the measures that must be implemented in their workplaces to protect them from hazards and risks,” said Occupational Safety and Health Center Executive Director Noel C. Binag, CE.

The OSHC is set to hold a series of webinars on OSHS for the public sector this September. The webinars, which will be conducted via Zoom is open to HR personnel and other representatives from government agencies who will be designated as safety officers.

The webinars will feature lectures and discussions on working conditions and emergency preparedness, safety and health committee development of OSH policies, handling of hazardous chemicals and materials, OSH trainings, and sharing of best practices.
