More volunteer labor inspectors deployed

 

More than 200 volunteer labor inspectors from labor, management, and professional organization sectors have been given general authority by Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III to inspect establishments in regions with large concentration of industries.

 

In an administrative order, Bello deputized 237 inspectors whose authority took effect on March 27 and will be valid until December 31. They will help augment DOLE’s inspection teams in the strict enforcement of labor laws in various establishments in the National Capital Region, Cordillera Administrative Region, Ilocos, Cagayan Valley, Central Luzon, Calabarzon, Bicol, Western Visayas, Central Visayas, Eastern Visayas, Zamboanga Peninsula, Northern Mindanao, Davao, Socsksargen, and Caraga.

 

As provided in the order, the volunteer inspectors may interview workers in the presence of DOLE compliance officers and employers’ representatives, review employment records and attend mandatory conferences of the assessed establishments.

 

The volunteer inspectors are under the direct supervision and control of DOLE regional directors.

 

The deployment of volunteer inspectors coming from DOLE’s social partners is one of the strategies implemented by the labor department to assess about the 900,000 establishments’ compliance with general labor standards and occupational safety and health.

 

Deputized inspectors come from qualified members of legitimate labor organizations, labor associations, chartered locals, national union or federation, accredited integrated professional organization/accredited professional organization, non-government organization, and employer’s organization.

 

The deputized inspectors are supervised by LLCOs and function on a voluntary basis, thus will not be paid for their services.

 

To be a deputized inspector, one must undergo comprehensive training on general labor standards and occupational safety and health and earn certification from DOLE.

 

In the Administrative Order, Bello directed the regional directors to issue the corresponding authority to assess or inspect target establishments and workplaces.

 

The DOLE regional offices submit a quarterly report of inspection activities to the Bureau of Working Conditions that were participated in by deputized DOLE volunteer inspectors. # # # GSR

Pangangasiwaan ang mga volunteer inspector ng mga regional director ng DOLE.

Ang pagtatalaga sa mga volunteer inspector mula sa mga social partner ng DOLE ay isa sa mga istratehiya na ginawa ng kagawaran upang matiyak ang pagsunod ng tinatayang nasa 900,000 establisimento sa general labor standards at occupational safety and health.

Sa nasabing Administrative Order, inatasan ni Bello ang mga regional director na mag-isyu ng mga naaayong authority to assess o inspect sa mga napiling establisimento at kumpanya.

Inatasan ring magsumite ang mga regional office ng DOLE ng quarterly report ng mga aktibidad ng inspeksyon sa Bureau of Working Conditions kung saan kabilang ang mga deputized volunteer inspector ng DOLE.
