DOLE accredits more OSH trainers
by DOLE release

To facilitate the compliance of companies with the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) law, Labor Sec. Silvestre Bello III issued Labor Advisory 10 s. 2019 identifying three more institutions that can provide certified first aid training to designated company first aiders.

DOLE-Cordillera Director Exequiel Ronie A. Guzman said aside from the Professional Regulation Commission, business establishments can now engage the services of the Department of Health, Bureau of Fire Protection, and Technical Education and Skills Development Authority in providing first aid training as provided in Republic Act 11058 or the OSH Law and Department Order 198-18.

Guzman added that under the implementing rules and regulations of RA 11050, the Labor Secretary is authorized to certify any organization to provide certified first aid training. The certified first aider must be trained and duly certified by the Philippine Red Cross.

“Valid training certificates, including identification cards issued by the certified first aid training providers to the designated company first aider, shall be considered proof of compliance with the said provision of the OSH law,” Guzman said.

Compliance to the labor advisory, which took effect on Oct. 21, 2019, will be monitored by DOLE regional offices.

The OSH law covers all private establishments where work is undertaken, including establishments located inside special economic zones and other investment promotion agencies. They must have qualified occupational safety and health officer which consist of the first aider, safety officer, nurses, dentists, and physicians.

All OSH personnel are required to undergo the prescribed mandatory training from DOLE-accredited safety training organizations or its recognized training institutions.
