Construction of Slope Protection


T his structure is designed and built for the purpose of protecting the
coastal soil from erosion. The design follows a very simple pattern for the soil
from scouring, which protects the removal of top soil from continuous
scrubbing and pounding of sea waves or rain water especially during typhoons
or storms. This will serve as a way for us to help protect the environment.

Methodology for this construction includes removal of silt/sand and


replacement with more stable earth material such as limestone. After which, a
geo-textile membrane is placed which will protect the limestone layer. Then,
armor rocks are laid to respond to any exposure or destruction from seawater
or rainwater. Lastly, the void space between the layers will be filled with
concrete by the contractor for finishing.

Environmental, Health and
Safety (EHS) Program

O ne of the commitments of KSPC is the safety of the environment, the


affected community and the people at construction site. In response to this
commitment, Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) Program is being
implemented in the construction site.

The objective of the program is Zero-Accidents during the course of the


construction and commissioning of the project. To meet this objective, an EHS
Committee was established by the main contractor with the guidance of KSPC.
Subcontractors were also included in the committee to ensure that the
objective will be met through the cooperation of all involved parties. Emergency
procedures were established to address accidental or emergency situations
arising from the on-going construction works.

EHS Program (Cont’d.)
To ensure the safety and convenience of all workers, a canteen was
constructed inside the construction site. The workers were also provided a
place where they could rest during break times.

To keep the workers alert at all times, a daily exercise is presided by a safety
personnel. Personal Protective Equipments are checked before the workers are
allowed to work. Safety symbols and color codes were established to make the
workers aware of safety and health hazards in a particular area. A daily safety
meeting is also done to assess unsafe and unhealthy working environment.
Reports were also presented periodically to monitor the effectiveness of the
EHS program.

As of January 20, 2009, the construction works have already reached 341
days with Zero-Accidents.

Celebrating Christmas with the Children
of Barangay Colon

C hristmas is a time of giving and sharing, and in some little ways, KSPC
was able to celebrate the spirit of Christmas with the less fortunate children of
Barangay Colon, Naga, Cebu.

Last December 23, 2008, a community outreach program was held in


Barangay Colon, Naga. The program was made successful through continued
support from the Barangay Council and volunteers from the community. The
children were given the chance to showcase their talents in dancing and skills
in playing various games.

KSPC believes that no matter how small a gift maybe, be it a simple toy
wrapped in fancy paper or a burger bought from a fast food chain, what
matters most is the idea of sharing in the spirit of yuletide season.
