SN Aboitiz Power-Magat, Inc. (SNAP-Magat) is Region II’s health and safety champion after bagging the Department of Labor and Employment’s (DOLE) highest distinction at the Gawad Kaligtasan at Kalusugan (GKK) regional awarding ceremony, held in Tuguegarao City, Cagayan on October 24, 2022. The award was personally conferred by Assistant Regional Director Jesus Elpidio Atal, Jr. to SNAP representatives.
Through the GKK, DOLE recognizes outstanding establishments and individuals in terms of successful health, safety, and environment programs and policies. A Regional Selection Committee, chaired by the DOLE regional director and composed of experts from DOLE-Region 2, OSHC, and ECC, determined SNAP-Magat as the region’s winning organization after conducting regional validation and judging of qualified entries. SNAP-Magat also won the best short presentation award in this year’s awarding.
In a speech at the ceremony, Assistant Regional Director Atal commended companies that continue to implement health and safety protocols that elevate the workplace environment.
The regional award makes SNAP-Magat eligible for the National GKK championship, the winners of which will be determined later in the year. Meanwhile, true to its core value of safety, SNAP strives to keep raising the benchmark on innovative and effective health and safety programs for its workforce and communities.
