businesses on safety compliance
BY CHRYSEE G. SAMILLANO
A resolution requesting the Department of Labor and Employment-Bacolod to inspect all business establishments that are under construction, renovation, and repairs, on whether the laborers/workers are provided with protective gear such as hard hats/helmets and others, was approved by the Bacolod Sangguniang Panlungsod Wednesday.
The resolution, authored by Councilor Bartolome Orola, also requested the DOLE to inspect working sites, if these are provided with safety nets and other measures for the safety and protection of construction workers and bystanders, as required under the National Building Code or Republic Act 6541.There is no doubt that the apparent side-by-side infrastructure developments have greatly influenced the city’s economic progress and has dramatically changed the landscape of Bacolod City, it said.
