by Ben Moses Ebreo

BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya, Jan 23(PIA) –- The Department of Labor and Employment(DOLE) here recently awarded a power firm SN Aboitiz Power (SNAP) for achieving zero lost time record.

DOLE’s Bureau of Working Conditions(DOLE – BWC) gave the Safety Milestone Recognition (SMILE) Awards to SNAP for their record man-hours without a Lost-Time Incident(LTI).

The awards were handed out by DOLE Undersecretary Lourdes Trasmonte, DOLE-BWC director Brenda Villafuerte, and DOLE Region II director Grace Ursua. SNAP was represented by assistant vice president for Safety, Health, Environment, Security and Quality (SHESQ) Nomer A. Reynaldo.

The award which was given in December 2011 cited SNAP, a joint venture between SN Power of Norway and AboitizPower for its 2010 record of no LTI of 303,680 man-hours. Since SNAP took over in 2007, Magat has accumulated 1,524,039 man-hours LTI-free as of Dec. 31, 2011.

The firm’s Ambuklao and Binga Plants also received similar award for its 2010 record of 372,305 and 503,095.50 LTI-free man-hours, respectively. Ambuklao has achieved 1,385,531 safe man-hours as of Dec. 31, 2011 while Binga posted 1,539,920 man-hours LTI-free in the same period for a combined total of 2,925,451 man-hours LTI-free.

The SMILE award is a recognition program of the DOLE-BWC for companies that have at least a million safe work-hours without LTI or at least a year of operation or construction activities without any cases of LTI.

“These awards speak of SNAP’s commitment to the highest standards of workplace safety,but more importantly, this reflects the dedication of our teams in Magat, Ambuklao, and Binga, who work to ensure the safety of each and every employee and contractor in our plants,” said SNAP President and Chief Executive Officer Emmanuel V. Rubio.

DOLE also awarded Safety Recognitions to SNAP personnel for the attainment of safety milestones in their respective companies. The awardees were Nomer Reynaldo; Cesar Vicente, Jessie Palma, and Clifford Dailay, Sr. SHES Specialists for Magat, Binga, and Ambuklao plants respectively; and Efren Legaspi, Health, Safety and Environment Inspector for Binga plant.

The 360-MW Magat plant located at the border of Alfonso Lista, Ifugao and Ramon, Isabela is owned and operated by SNAP-Magat while the 105-MW Ambuklao plant in Bokod and 100-MW Binga plant in Itogon, both in the province of Benguet, are owned and operated by SNAP-Benguet.
