This seminar (prescribed training of DOLE-BWC for everyone assigned to manage safety and health) is designed to help participants better understand 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 as this is a basic legal requirement. Different aspects of safety will be discussed to enable participants to acquire the technical knowledge on how to effectively carry out the above conditions 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 occurring.
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, BOSH training will provide the basic premise on how to develop and implement the occupational safety and health program.
Supervisors, managers and executives who desire to fully comprehend the basic requirements on workplace safety as mandated by the Philippine government.

are solutions, whereas Safety is a Way of Life.”
