Other Posts

In a collaborative effort to enhance safety awareness and emergency preparedness, the University of Baguio Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Team recently lent their assistance in conducting an Unannounced Mandatory Fire Drill and Earthquake Drill at Pinsao Elementary School. Through the invitation of the Department of Education (DepEd), the university was able to lend its assistance to the community through the joint activity.

The team, consisting of members from the Risk Management Office (RMO), Campus Planning and Development Office (CPDO), and Security department, conducted the simulation drills to emulate real-life emergency scenarios to educate the students and teachers on the proper response procedures. Apart from reinforcing the Duck, Cover, and Hold emergency response, they also taught the faculty and students the proper way to make use of a fire extinguisher.

This initiative showcased UB’s commitment to promoting safety not only within its campus, but in the wider community. By extending their expertise to Pinsao Elementary School, the OSH Team demonstrated a dedication to fostering a culture of safety and preparedness/

Through collaborative efforts like this, institutions can work together to create safer environments and equip individuals of all ages with the knowledge and skills needed to effectively respond to emergency situations.
