Secretary Bello Issues Safety Seal Certification to 3 Manufacturing Firms in Rizal

Labor Secretary Silvestro “Bebot” Bello III awards Safety Seal Certification to three manufacturing companies in Rizal, June 25.

Monde M.Y. San Corporation, Laura’s Food Product Corporation, and iPrint Labels and Packaging are the first batch of companies to receive the said certification in the province.

The Safety Seal Certification is a voluntary certification program which affirms if an establishment is indeed compliant with the minimum public health standards and uses contact tracing application like the StaySafe.ph.

Pursuant to DOLE-DOH-DILG-DOT-DTI Joint Memorandum Circular No. 21-01, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) is mandated to issue the Safety Seal Certificate to manufacturing companies, utilities companies (e.g. electric, gas, water, air conditioning supply etc.) information and communication companies (e.g. publications, news, TV and film productions etc.), construction sites and warehouses.

Prior to the issuance of Safety Seal, DOLE inspects/validates the compliance of the company/establishment with the minimum public health standards set by the government. The said certification will be valid for six (6) months from the date of issuance and is renewable provided that the establishment will continue its compliance and provide the necessary documents required.

Tess Ong, Human Resource Manager of M.Y. San Corporation shared as to why they applied for the certification.

“Actually, para rin naman ma-aware ang mga tao. Para hindi naman sila matakot na mag-apply. Kasi, kahit papaano, hiring pa rin kami,” Ong said.

On the recent statement given by Sec. Bello, he urged the private business owners to apply for the Safety Seal, hoping that it could help to increase the public confidence.
“While the application is voluntary, I highly encourage our private business owners to seek for the safety certification to help increase public confidence,” Bello encouraged. He also noted that acquiring the Safety Seal is a free of charge.

Ong also believed that having a Safety Seal could help their employees and their management to have confidence working on-site.

“Nakaka-boost ito ng confidence ng empleyado namin pati ng top management. Siyempre, ‘‘yung safety seal, nakaka-proud siya. Gaganahan ‘yung tao especially our employees na pumasok. Na hindi sila magiging pala-absent. Kasi strictly implementing naman ang aming [company] ng safety protocol,” Ong reiterated.

Atty. Ma. Karina Perida-Trayvilla Director of Bureau of Workers with Special Concerns, DOLE CALABARZON Director, Exequiel Ronie A. Guzman, OIC-Assistant Regional Director Atty. Nepomuceno A. Leaño, II, Rizal Provincial Director Marivic B. Martinez, and Congressman Fidel Nograles also assisted the Labor Secretary in distributing the Safety Seal.
