The Occupational Safety and Health Center recently opened its newest branch in Cagayan de Oro City to bring its services closer to the people of Mindanao. The new office is also a response to the clamor of the Occupational Safety and Health Network 10 for a more permanent presence of OSHC in the region.
“The opening of this new branch will help ensure the safety and health of workers and consequently help bring more business to this economically fertile place,” said Labor Undersecretary Lourdes M Trasmonte during the program attended by representatives from different government agencies, the academe, local government offices, trade unions and the media. “Having an OSHC office in Cagayan de Oro further affirms our economic potential,” OSHNET President Arthur Mencius Quiblat added.
Through research, training, information dissemination and technical services such as safety and health (OSH) audits and work environment measurement, the OSHC CDO Branch will assist establishments, businesses and offices in both private and public sectors. The OSH specialists assigned in the CDO Branch will closely cooperate with the DOLE Regional Offices in Mindanao as well as other stakeholders to better improve the safety and health condition of workers and the working environment in the area
The CDO Branch is the second branch opened, the first being in Cebu. The Center envisions the CDO branch to be a fully functional OSHC with laboratories and equipment to duplicate the functions of the main office.
The OSHC CDO Office is located at the 3rd Floor Gonzalo Go Building, Corrales Avenue, DOLE Region 10, Cagayan de Oro City. For more information and inquiries, please contact Engr. Rynie Zamuco at telephone numbers (08822) 721-316 or (0927-564-0505) or through email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
