“We need to inform, educate, and accustom our workers and employers, as well as the general public, on occupational safety and health, so they can be aware and vigilant. On the other hand, the public can help us in our campaign to foster safe and healthy workplaces by reporting to us all risky, dangerous, and unsafe working conditions and practices so we can take fast action. Occupational safety and health is a two-way street. It cannot be that the government only has the responsibility,” Baldoz said.
However, in asking the public to report the presence or existence of risky and unsafe conditions and practices in all establishments, the labor and employment has a warning and a plea.
“While we will exert effort to verify even anonymous tips, we also request reporters or tipsters to please avoid making prank calls,” she said.
