DMC receives Safety Seal Certification

The Dinapigue Mining Corporation (DMC) was awarded the Safety Seal Certification by no less than the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) on May 5, 2022, at the DMC Main Camp in Dinapigue, Isabela.

“The guidelines for the certification of the Safety Seal for organizations allows the company to effectively implement early detection, prevention, and control measures which greatly aid us in preventing the spread of COVID-19,” said Site Nurse Genevie Quejas who was a member of the implementing team for the guidelines for Safety Seal Certification on-site.

DMC was officially certified on March 21, 2022 after the Safety Seal inspection conducted by representatives of DOLE.

The DOLE representatives who awarded the certification on-site were SENA Desk Officer Divine Grace P. Cristobal and Attorney Mary Gladys P. Paguigiran.
