RA 11058, “An Act Strengthening Compliance with Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Standards and Providing Penalties for Violations Thereof” (August 2018) and its Implementing Rules and Regulations (December 2018) directs Philippine workplaces to ensure worker safety and safeguard their health while at work. Filipino physical therapists are now expected to implement health and safety programs in the diverse environments where they practice.
