More and more of our projects are achieving significant safety milestones. The first few months of 2015 alone witnessed back-to-back safety achievements of many of our projects. We interviewed our safety leads at these sites and asked how they ensure that their projects are accident-free.
679,438 Safe Man Hours as of March 13 | Masinloc Power Partners Co. Ltd. Employee Housing Facility | Masinloc, Zambales
“As a safety personnel, I believe there is no such thing called tadhana at the sites. We remind people to always be vigilant. Accidents are preventable and as the saying goes, doing good is better than being lucky. Reminders are done through constant communication, which I think is the most essential element in the promotion of our safety programs. For instance, in our Tool Box discussion every morning, we are able to encourage the workers to comply with the company’s safety standards and client requirements as well.” – ESH Manager Felix G. Angat, Jr.
1,284,550 Safe Man Hours as of March 12 | NIGBU Cluster of Projects | Dumaguete
“Simple, the safety culture at the site is made possible by the support of each project team member. We all go beyond the required safety practices so that we can come home to our families healthy and safe everyday.” – ESH Sr. Supervisor Paquito S. Kong.

“It all begins with one goal, and that is to be accident-free. To hit this target, each of us at the site strictly complies with safety requirements. Everyone understands that safety is not only the responsibility of us in the Environment, Safety, and Health (ESH) Department. We make them realize its importance through safety orientations, tool box meetings, drills, and health trainings. The commitment and teamwork to ensure a safe work environment have kept incidents at bay and have earned for us various safety recognitions.” – ESH Asst. Manager RJ Ortile.
