Starting on January 2013, all employees in Boracay, particularly the “front liners” will undergo x-ray examination.
This is for the employees to acquire a Health Card and is also a requirement for the renewal of business permits of the establishments they are working for, explained Malay Administrator Godofredo Sadiasa.
He added that although this would be another expense for the employees, but this is also for their health’s benefit.
He also said this will be implemented in 2013, when in fact, having reviewed the Sanitation Ordinance, it showed that this was already included on the list of requirements for the annual business permit renewal.
Its goal is to ensure the health of the employees and to make certain that they do not have any contagious diseases, particularly the food handlers.
More so that Boracay is a tourist destination.
