Basic Occupational Safety and Health
May 25 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 8:00 am, repeating until May 28, 2021
Safety is good for business. A safe and healthy workplace eliminates accidents, reduces absenteeism, raises employee morale, and enhances employee productivity. The absence of a safe and healthy working environment increases the frequency of workplace accidents and illnesses resulting in the increase of the cost of doing business.
With the cases mentioned above, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) issued department order (DO) 198 s. 2018 to strengthen the enforcement of OSH policies and programs for private companies. The DO states that companies must establish safety and health policies and programs as well as install safety officers to ensure that these programs are being enforced.
In this regard, ECOP will conduct a 5-day intensive online training program with safety officers as prospective participants. This extensive training will help them to assume the roles of a full-fledged Safety Officer 2 (based on the Implementing Rules and Regulations). It will also help them gain the necessary skills and knowledge to develop safety and health policies and programs for their companies and mitigate the risk and hazards that can cause occupational accidents and illnesses in the workplace.
At the end of the 5-day (40 hours) intensive training program, participants will be able to:
- Learn the basics of occupational safety and health
- Understand government regulations that focuses on occupational safety and health
- Determine hazards and risks at work and develop measures on how to eliminate them
- Draft company OSH policies
- Be certified safety officer 2 practitioner
- Overview of Occupational Safety and Health
- How to Comply with the DOLE Department Order no. 198 series of 2018
- Introduction to Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment, and Control

- Communicating OSH in the workplace: trainer’s training course
The webinar will adopt the blended learning approach. Participants will be provided ECOP’s eCampus login credentials for them to access self-paced training materials (such as videos, power point presentations, and other relevant training documents). The eCampus platform will help the participants prepare for the actual scheduled Zoom check-in sessions.
During the scheduled Zoom check-in session, lecturers will provide the following:

Participants are also required to answer pre-and-post-test to check the effectiveness of the training program.
