Sua, and Meralco Head of Corporate Occupational Safety and Environment Management Jose Rafael C. Atienza.

Public safety should also be part of the mandate not only by the government but also by the private sector. As part of its proactive campaign to contribute to ensuring public safety, Manuel V. Pangilinan-led Manila Electric Company (Meralco) has teamed up with the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) to promote road safety among the power distributor’s employees through the conduct of Basic Motorcycle Riding courses.

The two-day Basic Motorcycle Riding Course by MMDA is offered for free and open to the public. The program availed by Meralco aims to provide the necessary knowledge and skills related to safe motorcycle riding and to reduce the number of employee incidents related to motorcycles.

“Road safety is a shared responsibility. This initiative in partnership with the MMDA will equip our employees with the proper training on motorcycle riding and help us enhance their safety as well as the members of the riding community that we share the roads with,” said Lao. Around 150 Meralco personnel signed up for the program, the first leg of which was conducted last March 12 and 13 at the MMDA Motorcycle Riding Academy in Pasig City. MMDA will facilitate the same training in Meralco’s sector offices in Sta. Rosa City, Laguna on March 19 and 20, and in Valenzuela City on March 26 and 27.
