The PCPPI San Fernando Plant is a Hall of Famer in the Healthiest Workplace Award; winning first place for three consecutive years from 2016 to 2018, and another in 2021.
Pepsi-Cola Products Philippines Inc. (PCPPI) San Fernando plant recently received the “Healthy Workplace Award” from the City Health Office of San Fernando, Pampanga.
This is as PCPPI, the exclusive manufacturer of PepsiCo beverages in the country, ensures that health and safety standards are strictly observed across all levels of the organization.
The award is aligned with the City Government’s Agenda #4: “Malusog na Fernandino, Masiglang Pamumuhay ay Sigurado,” which is anchored on the safety and welfare of its constituents from health risks. The City Health Office – Environmental Health and Sanitation Division has been recognizing the City’s “Healthy Places” for the past ten years.
San Fernando’s devoted system of responsibility has opened up opportunities for multi-sectoral cooperation. This initiative has developed a health promotion strategy and action in partnership with non-government organizations.
The PCPPI San Fernando plant bagged the first-place on the Healthiest Workplace Award under the “Large Category”. The winners were evaluated based on several indicators including Occupational, Health, Sanitation & Safety Program, Health & Safety Committee, Engineering Control, Environment Protection, and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
“PCCPI commits to providing our people a safe and healthy workplace. This is among our top priorities even prior to the pandemic. By maintaining strict health and safety standards in all our plants and offices, we are able to boost our employees’ morale and further encourage productivity at work,” said PCPPI president and chief executive officer Frederick D. Ong.
