SN Aboitiz Power Magat’s (SNAP-Magat) commitment to the highest standards of health and safety was reaffirmed by the Department of Labor and Employment Regional Office No. II (DOLE RO2) when it awarded a Safety Seal to the renewable energy solutions provider on July 16, 2021 in Ramon, Isabela. SNAP-Magat was one of the first two companies in the province of Isabela to receive such an accolade following a thorough inspection and validation of its adherence to government-mandated protocols against COVID-19. DOLE-Isabela Provincial Head Evelyn Yango expressed her sincerest appreciation to SNAP-Magat for successfully implementing the Safety Seal Certification program’s objectives. “Our cause is one, to restore and accelerate the growth of our nation in which a safer and healthier environment plays a huge part. Spread this cause through the mark of the safety seal, for we are sure that this seal reflects the image of the services of the company itself, “ Yango said, echoing the aim of DOLE RO2 Regional Director Joel M. Gonzales. “This Safety Seal is a testament to our commitment to health and safety as well as the well-being of our employees,” said Willy Ferrer, SNAP Group Head of Central Maintenance & Technical Services. With safety being one of SNAP’s core values, the company strictly enforces precautionary measures as mandated by the government and SNAP’s own company protocols. The Safety Seal Certification is a voluntary certification scheme which confirms that a company meets the government’s minimum public health standards. The program’s goal is to create safer and healthier workplaces that benefit the company, its workforce, the community, and the nation.
