TVIRD launches anti-drug use campaign
The National Survey on Drug Use and Health in 2002 show that the construction and mining industries have the highest levels of heavy alcohol and illicit drug use in the Philippines. These are partially explained by higher concentration of males in both industries.
Consequently, drug dependence and abuse constitute the leading causes of accidents and problems within the workplace as well as the community.
In an effort to preserve its excellent safety record, TVI Resource Development Philippines, Inc. (TVIRD) launched recently its Drug-Free Workplace campaign in the Company's Canatuan Project, in accordance with the Department of Labor and Employment's (DOLE)'s Drug-Free Workplace Program and the Dangerous Drugs Act.
Our policy is an employee-friendly one.” TVIRD Canatuan HR Officer Imma Caami?
