The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) and the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) inspected the health safety protocols being carried out by workplaces in Metro Iloilo to avoid the spread of COVID-19.
DTI Western Visayas regional director Rebecca Rascon said that the joint interim guidelines focus on areas for compliance such as increasing physical and mental resilience of workers, reducing transmission, contact, and risk of infection. The inspection covers business establishments, manufacturing firms, and business process outsourcing (BPO) companies.
“This will be a continuous process until we see that the degree of compliance is high. We cannot say that by the first week of June we can finish this,” Rasco added.
