Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III said GMA Network could face fines of up to Php100,000 and suspension should an ongoing investigation establish there were violations of the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Law that led to veteran actor and film director Eddie Garcia’s untimely death last Thursday, June 20.

“Under the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Law, kailangan merong OSH officer in every establishment. You make the workplace safe and compliant with health standards,” CNN Philippines quoted Bello as saying in a phone interview.

“Iinspeksyunin nila kung tama ‘yung pagkahawak kay Mr. Eddie Garcia. Kung merong safety and health officer, baka nabigyan ng tamang treatment when he had that accident,” the Cabinet official added.

If found liable, Bello said Occupational Safety and Health Center (OSHC) can file administrative charges against the network should the inspection reveal violations of Republic Act 11058 or the OSH law signed August 2018.

Bello reportedly said the network could face a monetary fine or even “suspension of operations,” depending on how serious the lapses were.

The law sets a maximum fine of ₱100,000. This covers cases of death, serious injury or serious illness while in the workplace.

According to OSHC Executive Director Noel Binag, authorities can order stoppage of work or suspension of operations in cases of “imminent danger” as a result of the employers’ violation or fault.
