MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

 Message from the President

Warmest greetings!

As my term as ASPPI President expires in a few weeks, I am writing you with total gladness for the three years of unwavering support and backing to my leadership.  Being at the helm of the only association of DOLE-accredited Occupational Safety and Health practitioners and consultants is indeed a challenging job and I can only thank our God for His blessings and guidance to my fellows leaders in the Board of Trustees and Executive Committee of ASPPI.

 While we manage to sustain our good financial standing and achieved new milestones in our advocacies, the next set of leaders will surely gear themselves up to more exciting activities and programs in the year 2017.  We will not relax on our successes as there will be more tasks ahead of us in ensuring that our fellow Filipino workers are always protected from workplace accidents.   Our public-private partnership with DOLE, particularly with the Occupational Safety and Health Center have remained strong just as new companies have now joined us in our advocacies after agreeing and signifying their intention to become our institutional partners.  The new ASPPI industry partners are EEI Corporation, Unilever Philippines, Kimberly-Clarke Philippines, Neville Clarke and St. Lukes –BGC Hospital.  We are able to formalize also the instituting of our first student chapter with the ASPPI- Mapua Student’s Chapter’s recognition by their schools this year and the conduct of our first Student OSH Convention last February 2016.

We enjoin our General Membership to continue their patronage of our forum and convention and the never-ending support from our partner safety equipment suppliers and activity sponsors.  I will remain in the Board of Trustees as the new Board Chairman and have volunteered to lead the committees on Constitution and By-laws and Good Governance. The work in our beloved association has not stopped and for me, only the roles have changed.

 I hope to see you all again in our future ASPPI activities!

President, ASPPI National
