Million Safe Manhours milestones are marked to acknowledge employers’ effectiveness in implementing workplace safety management programs. HTLand, Inc. is the first among property developers in Cebu to reach the 10 million goal post.
The project currently employs 2,800 workers under the supervision of ten partner suppliers, delivering general construction, electrical and auxiliary, mechanical, fire protection, waterproofing and other primary services, project program and construction management, and quantity surveying.
HTLand Sr. Project Manager Shaun Pereira credits the company’s partners, Monocrete Construction Philippines, Inc., ASEC Development and Construction Corporation, Meralco MSERV, Gigatech General Engineering and Supplier, Air Beyond Satisfaction Services, Inc., Based on Scientia, HOLZ coating International, Inc., Bluetech Construction Corporation, Prime Power Energie System, Inc., and Rider Levett Bucknall for the program’s success.
Pereira shares that safety-oriented regulations faithfully observed at the project site facilitate not only the achievement of the safety milestones but also ensure that the environment and workers’ health and safety are not compromised.
At the tender stage, he explains, contractors submit the Environmental, Health and Safety Management Plan and Policy document which is evaluated by the DOLE. Work commences only upon submission of the DOLE-approved plan.
Daily toolbox meetings and pre-deployment orientation of workers emphasize the necessity of adhering to established health and safety rules. Issues and concerns requiring management solutions are discussed at regular higher-level meetings.
