Mr. Bernard Allan Unciano, Delta Safety Supervisor while giving some information on flagman and traffic control at the construction activity during the Flagmen training last Nov. 18.
Delta Earthmoving Construction, Inc. conducted a third flagman training for qualified Atimonanins last November 18 amid the need to fill in the immediate demand for additional flaggers.
The recent training followed two similar activities held last February 22 and June 18. Seven residents underwent the recent training, bringing the total number of flagmen trained to 47 – most of which are already employed.
Delta is one of the subcontractors of Atimonan One Energy, Inc (A1E) for its planned 1,200-megawatt coal fired power plant project in Villa Ibaba.
A flagman plays an important role in ensuring a safe work environment in construction sites.
According to Bernard Allan Unciano, Delta Safety Supervisor, Delta wants to help A1E in providing more job opportunities for the residents of project host municipality.
“Just like A1E, we want to link the communities to project-based employment opportunities, and we believe that this training serves as a platform in equipping them with the skills required for the construction workers we currently need.”
A1E is the developer of a 2×600 megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant in Atimonan, Quezon that will utilize high efficiency, low emission (HELE) technology known as ultra-supercritical.
