SGS Discusses the Importance of Testing and Inspection in the Construction Sector
Last September 18, 2015, SGS Philippines, Inc. was invited by the Philippine Products Safety and Quality Foundation (PPSQF) to be a speaker for its seminar entitled “Consumer Protection Policies and Trends Affecting to Construction Performance and Safety” with the theme “Transforming the CAMANAVA Region into a better and safe place to live!” The whole day event was held at the 3rd Floor AVR, Legislative Building, Valenzuela City Hall. The seminar aimed to share with members of the construction sector best practices and technologies that are applicable to current and future construction and infrastructure projects within the region to ensure safety and quality of builds.
Attended by more than 100 participants from the government sector, students, and construction industry practitioners, the event featured several presentations related to workplace safety, innovative products, new technologies, and services that are currently in use in the local construction industry.
Represented by Hap Junghan and Ron Suba, SGS gave an overview of the testing and inspection services that the company provides to the construction sector. Emphasizing the importance of testing and inspection to ensure the quality and adherence to the highest international standards, they shared the experience of SGS in several key construction and infrastructure projects worldwide, and how its services plays a vital role in the construction supply chain, from testing raw materials to inspecting the quality of the finished projects.
SGS also commits itself to the local industry by bringing the same testing and inspection services to the country through establishing a Construction Materials Laboratory in 2016.
Overall, the seminar was able to heighten the awareness of the participants on the importance of prioritizing safety and quality in construction projects, by putting in place safe work practices and by using proven quality products and technology which have undergone rigorous testing and inspection, to ensure that their structures that are built for purpose and are built to last.
