Palawan is considered to be the world’s best island according to the Travel + Leisure Award and has been reaping the award three times in 2013, 2016 and 2017. On top of these awards, Palawan has also earned Best Islands in the World Award by the Conde Nast Travelers based on its survey of its 2017 Reader’s Choice Awards.
With these internationally acclaimed recognitions, the Island Province’s hotels and resorts have to ensure that they are fully equipped with safety and security management systems to avert any possible threats to their occupants, guests, and visitors.
This coming February 8-9, 2017, there will be a Seminar on Occupational Safety and Security for Hotels and Resorts, which will be attended by different hotels, resorts and related establishments in the province.
“We cater to the needs of the hotels and resorts in Palawan to make sure that they are fully aware of their health and safety management system, to create one if they still don’t have it, and to curb any threats to their facilities through this seminar,” said Vince Ligtas, Sales and Marketing Officer of Petrosphere Incorporated.
