Occupational Safety and Health for Construction Industry Featured

This seminar (prescribed training of DOLE-BWC for everyone assigned to manage safety and health) is designed to help participants have a better understanding of the Occupational Safety and Health Standards of the Philippines. This is where the basic knowledge on recognizing workplace hazards can be found including a discussion on how important it is in keeping our workplace safe and healthy, being a basic legal requirement. Different aspects of safety will be discussed to enable participants to acquire the technical knowledge on how to effectively address workplace hazards and risks as required by the Philippine Department of Labour and Employment.

Before a service is provided or a product is made, workers engaged in the process are exposed to hazards. Consequently, these hazards can result to accidents. Workplace accidents that could happen can potentially result to tremendous losses in terms of human suffering (from injuries or loss of lives), property and environmental damages and material losses. When this happens, business operations and productivity, which gives life to our country’s economy, would be interrupted.Therefore, workplace accidents must be prevented from happening.

In view of the above, fundamentals on how to recognize hazards in the workplace must be first understood so that they can be properly identified and effectively addressed. This training will provide the principle on proper hazard recognition, their effects on the business and how they should be addressed as stated in the Basic Occupational Safety and Health Standards. In this training, employers’ accountability to safety will also be discussed as workplace safety is a basic constitutional right of every Filipino worker. Following this framework, COSH training will provide the basic premise on how to develop and implement the occupational safety and health program.
COSH Training will enable participants to:
• Promote and support government objectives in preventing accidents in the workplace and in developing the skills of safety practitioners;
• Understand and properly communicate government standards on Occupational Safety and Health;
• Commit to support government objectives by developing a Safety and Health policy aligned with government standards;
• Effectively organize for safety by properly forming the Safety and Health Committee;
• Demonstrate the basic knowledge and skills on how to recognize workplace hazards (based on government standards) and on how to prevent workplace accidents from happening;
• Develop Accident Prevention Programs (based on government standards) and implement them;
• Understand that the basic function of the safety practitioner is to influence people in their environment (that their effectiveness depends on how they influence) for them to be effective in discharging their duties and responsibilities;

• Properly and timely prepare and send government required reports.

“Safety is not about promoting brands and buying safety products… Rather, safety is about preventing accidents and managing risks. Products
are solutions, whereas Safety is a Way of Life.”
