PIA Press Release

NorMin Prodnet advocates for drug-free workplaces to increase productivity

by Rutchie Cabahug-Aguhob

Cagayan de Oro City (20 October) -- The Government believes that economic takeoff is well within reach, hence, it has been working overtime on the economic blueprint of Pres. Gloria Arroyo.

“Thus, we will continue to advocate for our theme of ‘Productivity We Grow, Globally We Go,’ not only during the National Productivity Month of October, but all throughout the year,” Atty. Domingo Lazaro L. Carranza, President of the Northern Mindanao Productivity Network Association, Inc. (NorMin-Prodnet), said.

During a recent seminar on “Increasing Productivity by Maintaining a Drug-Free Workplace” in Grand Caprice Rest., Carranza, who is Head of the Human Resource Division of Nestle, Phil., Inc., Cagayan de Oro Factory, said we have to do everything to show that our country is impervious to domestic and global pressures as our people are upholding productivity and stability on all fronts.

The activity which was one among those undertaken by Normin-Prodnet to celebrate the NPM in the region had Dr. Dulce P. Estrella-Gust, Executive Director of the Occupational Safety and Health Center (OSHC), Manila as guest speaker.

Meanwhile, Carranza said we have to continue advocating for our workers to always be productive and remain to be industrious, systematic, time-conscious, innovative and have a strong value for work.

He also encouraged industries to deal with the emerging health problems in the workplace, such as those of stress, alcohol and drugs, HIV/AIDS and tobacco, among others.

“Workers have to keep away from harmful drugs and avoid addiction to it, because drug addiction is a disease that must be treated with medical intervention,” he emphasized.

When workers are addicted to drugs, they will need time to go about the treatment and money to spend for medications. They will begin to be absent from work and that’s when it would be very unproductive not only to the company but to the workers, themselves, Carranza added. (PIA 10) [top]
