The Department of Labor and Employment issued a Safety Seal Certification to Magna Prime Chemical Technologies, Inc. last September 21, 2021 after complying with the necessary public health standards set by the government in its effort to fight against COVID-19.
With the company’s commitment to ensure the safety and wellbeing of its people, Magna Prime focused on complying with the requirements set by the Department of Labor and Employment to protect its people against COVID-19.
The Safety Seal Certification is a voluntary certification scheme that officially affirms that an establishment is compliant with the minimum public health standards and uses or integrates its contact tracing with StaySafe.ph.
"For us, ‘yung Safety Seal ay malaking milestone sa atin dahil very challenging ‘yung time natin ngayon. We want to ensure na standard parin yung sinusunod natin; hindi tayo nagko-compromise. Kung ano man ang pine-prescribe ng DOLE, ng IATF, we are making sure that we are above that standard to assure that our workers are safe talaga," RN Leah Bautista said when asked about the significance of the Safety Seal to the company.
RN Leah Bautista also mentioned the continuous efforts of the company to ensure safety by following the company’s COVID-19 Hierarchy of Controls.
The company conducted vaccination programs, swab testings, 24-hour clinic consultations with a doctor, installed table barriers in the canteen, and imposed entry protocols such as temperature checking and wearing of face masks and face shields.
Magna Prime also shifted from paper forms to using the StaySafe.ph app, which provides a contactless and hassle-free contact tracing process.
“The good thing naman kaya din tayo nakakuha ng Safety Seal is dahil compliant tayo sa reporting [of Health Declaration], dun sa accuracy natin ng pagbibigay ng information,” RN Leah Bautista added.
As of October 6, 2021, Magna Prime has a vaccination rate of 84.18%. The company is continuously working on reinforcing safety protocols to further establish a safe workplace along with its recently acquired Safety Seal Certification.
