GMA Network faces a possible fine of P100,000 a day until full compliance of with the provisions of the implementing rules and regulations of the Occupational Safety and Health Standards Law.

This is the recent findings of the Department of Labor and Employment in their investigation on the death of veteran actor Eddie Garcia as revealed in a report from Inquirer.net.

According to DOLE-NCR Regional Director Sarah Buena Mirasol, they found that GMA failed to report of the incident on the set while filming a teleserye with Garcia.

In a report by Inquirer Entertainment, Mirasol was quoted in saying that the cause of death was due to an accident. This is contrary to the initial reports that stated that the actor experienced dizziness, which caused him to fall.

Mirasol explained that it is DOLE’s mandate to inspect and conduct OSH investigation if there are injuries or death in the workplace.

However, Garcia’s case is unique since the workplace where it happened was a temporary worksite.

Dole Department Order No. 198-18 outlined the different provisions on the implementation of OSH in the workplace.

Earlier, DOLE Secretary Silvestre Bello III revealed there was a lack of compliance with the requirement on the presence of a safety officer.

The penalty that the network will be facing is without prejudice to the filing of a criminal or civil case in the regular courts should the actor’s family pursue legal action.

DOLE is set to release the final results of their probe on August 30.
