TUGUEGARAO CITY, Cagayan – SN Aboitiz Power-Magat Inc. (SNAP-Magat) is Region II’s health and safety champion after bagging the Department of Labor and Employment’s (DOLE) highest distinction at the Gawad Kaligtasan at Kalusugan (GKK) regional awarding ceremony here on October 24.
DOLE Assistant Regional Director Jesus Elpidio Atal Jr. conferred the award personally to SNAP representatives. He commended companies that continue to implement health and safety protocols that elevate the workplace environment.
Through the GKK, DOLE recognizes outstanding establishments and individuals in terms of successful health, safety, and environment programs and policies.
A Regional Selection Committee, chaired by the DOLE regional director and composed of experts from DOLE-Region 2, the Occupational Safety and Health Center (OSHC), and the Employees’ Compensation Commission (ECC), determined SNAP-Magat as the region’s winning organization after conducting validation and judging of qualified entries.
Also, SNAP-Magat won the best short presentation award in this year’s awarding rites.
The award makes SNAP-Magat eligible for the National GKK championship, the winners of which will be determined later in the year.
Meanwhile, true to its core value of safety, SNAP strives to keep raising the benchmark on innovative and effective health and safety programs for its workforce and communities.
