In its recently concluded Gawad Kaligtasan, Kalusugan at Kapaligiran (GKKK) Awards, Maynilad Water Services, Inc. (Maynilad) was commended by Department of Health Assistant Secretary Dr. Eric Tayag for its commitment to occupational safety and health.

Maipagmamalaki namin kayo sapagkat ang kaligtasan ay pangunahing adhikain ng Maynilad. Hindi lahat ng organisasyon ay may ganitong uring minimithi kaya kayo ay bukod tangi dito sa ating bansa. Sana nga lang…matularan pa kayo ng maraming organisasyon. (We are proud of Maynilad for having occupational safety as one of its primary advocacies. Not all organizations in the country prioritize this. We wish that more organizations would follow your example),” said Dr. Tayag who served as keynote speaker during the GKKK Awards.

The Maynilad GKKK Awards is undertaken with the Department of Labor and Employment’s Occupational Health and Safety Center and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources’ National Capital Region-Environmental Management Bureau.
