With fatal accidents rising among workers at the Subic Bay work site of Hanjin Heavy Industries Corp. Philippines (HHIC-Phil.), the Department of Labor and Employment has developed an occupational safety and health (OSH) action program for the shipbuilding facility to ensure safety among workers.

Since 2008, a series of accidents has killed 17 workers at the work site.
“The program would assist HHIC-Phil. In developing an OSH system geared toward the implementation of a plant level zero accident program [ZAP} at its work site within the shortest possible time,” Labor Secretary Marianito Roque said.

Roque said the team conducted a workplace safety and health assessment at Hanjin and subsequently devised the OSH action program in a proposal to correct hazardous practices, ensure compliance with OSH standards and put up a stop of fatal accidents at the shipbuilding facility.

The program recommended the behavior of obligatory safety training courses about construction safety and occupational safety and health training among the workers of Hanjin.

“We aim for zero accidents at Hanjin,” Roque said as he urged Hanjin management and workers to build a workplace culture that gives importance to full adherence to safe practices and regulations.
