San Juan awards safety seal certifications 

account_balanceSan Juan chat_bubble_outline0 Comments

San Juan City, together with various government agencies, awarded on Friday safety seal certifications to compliant businesses and establishments, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.

The event was attended by San Juan City Mayor Francis Zamora, Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Usec. Jonathan Malaya, Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Sec. Ramon M. Lopez, and other government and private officials.

The Safety Seal Certification Program is an inter-agency initiative of DILG, Department of Health (DOH), DTI, Department of Tourism (DOT), and Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE).

It grants establishments a “Safety Seal” that will be displayed in the establishment which assures consumers and shoppers that the business is compliant to the health protocols against COVID-19.

“We welcome this kind of initiative as it aligns with what we are doing here in our city. Recently, we launched two executive orders that will encourage establishments to get their employees vaccinated and give incentives to vaccinated customers to boost consumer confidence and revive our economy,” Zamora said.

San Juan City gave the ceremonial award to Ortigas & Co. for its support to the initiatives of the city to curb the spread of the virus.

“The first local transmission of COVID-19 happened here in Greenhills Shopping Center. And since then, we have been partners with them in all our efforts in our fight against COVID-19. From their compliance to our health and safety protocols to allowing the local government to use their theatres to ramp up the city’s vaccination drive, Ortigas & Co. really deserves this award. Our battle cry is to end this here in Greenhills as well,” Zamora said.

The mayor said that establishments can get their safety seal by abiding to the minimum health protocols implemented by the Inter Agency Task Force (IATF) and the national government.

They must also use the StaySafe.ph to get the seal.

It is free of charge and valid for six months from the date of issuance and can be renewed subject to continued compliance to the requirements set by the government.

Zamora previously inked two executive orders to boost the city’s vaccination program.

Executive Order No. 81 encourages all employees of business establishments in San Juan to get vaccinated. This includes even those who are non-residents but are working in San Juan City, as stipulated in the IATF (Inter Agency Task Force)-set guidelines and priority group categorization.

Meanwhile, Executive Order No. 82 encourages businesses in San Juan City allowed to operate under GCQ (General Community Quarantine) to provide incentives and/or discounts to vaccinated customers.
