Employees Required To Wear Face Shields Starting August 15
FACE SHIELDS – Department of Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III said that employees in workplaces are required to wear face shields aside from face masks starting August 15
“Effective August 15, hindi lang face mask ang gamitin mo, kasama na ang face shield. So, ‘yun ang bagong protocol ngayon,”
The Inter-Agency Task Force also proposed that the employers will purchase the said shields for their employees.
“Ang proposal ng IATF is for the employer. Tutal one time lang naman eh, minsan ka lang bibili, baka hindi naman masyadong mabigat,”
Bello added that any employee who will not follow the said protocol will not be allowed to enter the workplace.
At the same time, employers will be held administratively liable if the health measure will not be observed in the workplace. Bello clarified that non-observance will not result in the closure of the said workplace.
“Huwag namang ganong kabigat… maaaring penalty lang siguro or reminder,
The IATF also ordered limiting individuals who will use smoking areas in workplaces.
“‘Yung sa smoking area, isang tao lang at a time. Hindi puwedeng dalawa,”
Based on the report, on Saturday, mandatory wearing of shields in all mass transport vehicles is set to take effect under Memorandum Circular No. 2020-014 by the Department of Transportation.
