It is right to take action on something that has cost someone his or her life, since we do not want the same thing to happen to others.

Pinoy OFW reported that Labor Attache Jalilo dela Torre has raised this memo to Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III, who is set to fly to Hong Kong two weeks from now.

This was made following the news that Rinalyn Dulluog fell from the 49th floor of her employer's apartment while she was cleaning the windows outside last August 9.

Despite Dela Torre's concern for OFWs, representatives of employment agencies in Hong Kong said otherwise - they told him that they should be trained on occupational safety instead.

We hope that his memo will be reviewed, as it is for the safety of every OFW who works hard for their families.
