GGDC Awarded with Safety Seal Certification
Global Gateway Development Corporation (GGDC) was awarded a Safety Seal Certification from Clark Development Corporation Epidemiology Service Unit (CDC-ESU).
The said certification confirms that an establishment is compliant and strictly adheres to the public health standard set by the government.
The Benefits of a Government Safety Seal Certification
The Safety Seal Certification is a voluntary certification scheme that affirms that an establishment is compliant with the minimum public health standards set by the government and uses or integrates its contact tracing with StaySafe.ph.
The DTI issues the Safety Seal for supermarkets, groceries, convenience stores, membership shopping clubs, construction supply/hardware stores, logistics service providers, barbershops and salons, and service and repair shops.
The government’s Safety Seal Certification program, which certifies an establishment for its compliance with the minimum public health standards (MPHS), is one of the government’s public-private sector’s collaborative efforts to reopen the economy and ensure its growth path safely. Safety Seal requirements include a valid Mayor’s permit, compliance with the minimum public health standards, and registration with the StaySafe.ph or any LGU-mandated digital contact tracing application.
What An establishment has to do is download the app and do a self-assessment. Once ready, the owner may now request for inspection by the local government unit, the Department of Trade and Industry or the Department of Labor and Employment.
The public or customers will also be encouraged to patronize these establishments because they know they are safe.
If there is no work, it is certain that our fellow Filipinos will continue to suffer from poverty and their families experiencing hunger. Poverty would lead to many social ills like malnutrition, poor mental capacity, literacy issues, poor values, crimes, and economic stagnation.
As individuals, we can help by observing the MPHS because that is the best way to keep the virus at bay. For establishments, following the same and getting the safety seal certification are essential to going back to operation safely. Getting vaccinated is the last step towards full protection from the disease for oneself and for others.
In doing so, we can help create more jobs and reintegrate the jobless back to the workforce.
