New PRDP project guidelines eyed

The Regional Project Coordination Office in Western Visayas is preparing to adopt the new guidelines set by the Social and Environmental Safeguards to combat the possible spread of COVID-19 among its employees and the public.

This was taken up during the implementation of projects under the Philippine Rural Development Project of the Department of Agriculture.

Ruby Labinghisa, RPCO Region 6 SES officer, said the new guidelines will include the PRDP components as they continue to gather inputs about the new framework.

Bacolod BPO firms adopt
work-from-home scheme

Business process outsourcing firms in Bacolod City with more than 1,000 employees have adopted 50 to 80 percent work-from-home arrangements, while those with 80 to 90 employees observe a one-seat-apart workplace setup, Mayor Evelio Leonardia said yesterday.

The BPO firms have been conducting regular enhanced on-site disinfection since the community quarantine started and that there are also physicians and nurses assigned on rotation, Leonardia said.

The mayor said he met online with the representatives of 13 BPO companies in Bacolod early this week to assess their compliance with health protocols for preventing the spread of coronavirus.
