Mishap that led to Eddie Garcia’s death probed

account_balanceMetro Manila chat_bubble_outline0 Comments

Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III on Friday said the Occupational Safety and Health Center was looking into the accident involving the late veteran actor Eddie Garcia during the filming of a television show early this month.

“It is not the DOLE that will investigate but Occupational Safety and Health Center executive director Noel Binag. It’s ongoing,” Bello said at the wake for Garcia in Taguig City.

Bello directed the OSHC to find out if there was compliance with OSH rules and standards.

He said during his term as a partylist representative in 2015, he had sponsored a resolution in the House of Representatives to recognize Garcia.

“I sponsored a resolution recognizing the work of Eddie Garcia as a reputable movie actor. He’s one actor who’s very famous, was never involved in any scandal unlike some. He was given recognition by Congress,” Bello said.

On June 8, Garcia was shooting a scene for a television series in Tondo, Manila, when he reportedly tripped on cables and fell.

He was in a coma for nearly two weeks before he died on June 20.

The television network said it was investigating the absence of a medical team when the accident happened.

In 2018, President Duterte signed the OSH Law, which ensures a safe and healthful workplace for workers by affording them full protection against all hazards at work.

The law provides that any person who manages, controls, or supervises the work is compelled to ensure that the place of employment is safe for workers, and should be free from hazardous conditions likely to cause death, illness, or physical harm to workers.

The Occupational Safety and Health Standards was formulated in 1978 and was revised in 1989. It was created in compliance with the constitutional mandate to safeguard the worker’s social and economic well-being as well as his physical safety and health.
