Meralco celebrated a new batch of electrical safety heroes with the third installment of Meralco K-Ligtas awards.
It was attended by key stakeholders in electricity safety and was held at the SMX Convention Center, Pasay City, in conjunction with the 43rd National Annual Convention of the Institute of Integrated Electrical Engineers (IIEE).
This year’s winners include manufacturing companies Samsung Electromechanics Phils. Corp. (SEMPHIL) and Yumex Philippines Corporation, and the city governments of San Juan and Caloocan.
The K-Ligtas winners have been proven to observe excellent practices in electrical safety as well as demonstrated invaluable heroism in promoting safety in the workplace.
“The K-Ligtas Awards program was initiated to promote awareness and practice of electrical safety compliance through the recognition of best practices of exemplary organizations. On its third year, the program continues to deliver mutual learning for both the working committee and participating institutions, which will help effectively address both the basic, as well as evolving electrical safety needs,” said Engr. Antonio M. Abuel, Jr., chairman of the 2018 K-Ligtas Awards.
The country’s first and only industry recognition program for electrical safety best practices, K-Ligtas Awards is an advocacy program of Meralco through the Meralco Power Academy (MPA), in collaboration with the Philippines’ premier institutions in electrical systems, labor management and public safety.
