Aboitiz Construction, Inc. (ACI) recently achieved a milestone of one million safe man-hours without lost-time injury for their project in Parañaque City. The project involved the construction of a 26,000-square-meter warehouse and office buildings for LBC Express and took place from June 2021 to April 2023.
To promote and ensure site safety, ACI regularly conducts emergency response drills, safety awareness sessions, toolbox meetings, and site inspections and audits.
“This achievement is a clear testament to our commitment towards safety. Across all our project sites, we prioritize safety and uphold operational excellence as we build quality structures for our clients. We are continuously striving to comply with the safety requirements set by the Department of Labor and Employment and the businesses that we work with,” said ACI Chief Operating Officer Ramez Sidhom.
The soon-to-be-completed Parañaque hub is the largest warehouse facility of LBC Express by far. Once finished, it will make for more efficient logistics and parcel delivery across the world.
ACI has directly provided job opportunities to 393 manpower and subcontracted a total of 301 workers for this project alone.
Last March, the company received its recertification for ISO 45001:2018 (Occupational Health and Safety Management System) for its sound occupational health and safety performance, staying true to its purpose of building for businesses to prosper and communities to thrive.
