According to the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), amid the threat of COVID-19, almost 10,000 business establishments failed to comply with safety and health standards to protect workers.

In a House budget hearing on Wednesday, DOLE Assistant Secretary Maria Teresita Cucueco said they inspected 40,943 establishments, but only 31,000 were found to be compliant.

“As of August, 40,943 establishments have been inspected, and we already have seen 31,000 establishments that have been complying, with a compliance rate of 75%,” she said.

Aside from DOLE, Cucueco said the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) and concerned local governments would help establishments with violations resolve their deficiencies in health standards.
