Since 1991, DOLE has been giving the GKK award to establishments and individuals with commendable safety practices in the workplace and in the community. The 11th GKK awarding was attended by DOLE Secretary Silvestro Bello III, together with the other members of the Board of Judges, namely: Joji V. Aragon, DOLE OIC–Undersecretary; Noel C.
