Construction Safety Watch
Construction Safety is one of the most important aspects in the Construction Industry. Properly implemented safety measures not only prevents injuries but saves lives. DOLE Department Order No. 13, series of 1998 requires that every construction project shall have a project specific Construction Safety and Health Program (CSHP) approved by the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE). The National Building Official (DPWH Secretary) has directed all Local Building Officials to require a DOLE approved CSHP for the building project as a prerequisite for the issuance of any Building Permit.
One of the cornerstones of the formation of the National Capital Region Construction Industry Tripartite Council (NCR-CITC) is “To advocate programs pertaining to the Decent Work Agenda such as working conditions particularly occupational safety and health, productivity improvement, and skills training due to advancement in technology”.
Consistent with the above, NCR-CITC has launched a Construction Safety Watch and invite members of the public to notify it of any safety violations at construction sites observed within the National Capital Region (NCR). For ease of reporting, simply complete the Report Form below and it will be transmitted to DOLE-NCR for action. See NCR-CITC launches NCR Construction Safety Watch.
