OPISYAL AT EMPLEYADO NG TESDA PASADO SA DRUG TEST

Naging matagumpay ang kampanya ng Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) na maging drug-free ang ahensiya matapos na magnegatibo sa isinagawang drug test ang mga opisyales at empleyado nito.

Pinangunahan ni TESDA Director General, Secretary Guiling “Gene” Mamondiong ang pagsasagawa ng random drug testing sa TESDA Central Office, TESDA National Capital Region (NCR) at TESDA Region 4-A o Calabarzon (Cavite-Laguna-Batangas-Rizal-Quezon) area.

Base sa ulat na nakarating kay Mamondiong, sa 211 napiling sumalang sa drug test ay 181 (85.78%) sa mga ito ang nakakumpleto sa pagsusuri at naging negatibo ang resulta habang ang natitira sa naturang bilang ay nakatakdang sumailalim sa mandatory random drug testing ng ahensiya sa itatakdang petsa.

Ayon kay Mamondiong, ang isinagawang surprise mandatory random drug testing ay bilang pagsunod sa Section I ng Board Regulation No. 2, series of 2004 ng Dangerous Drugs Board at Republic Act 9165 o mas kilala bilang Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002 kung saan ay naglabas din ang TESDA ng Circular No. 52 para sa policies and guidelines.

Ang mga empleyadong kasama sa napili para sa random drug testing na hindi nakapagpakuha ng kanilang ihi ay sa dahilang nasa labas ng tanggapan ang mga ito para sa kani-kanilang ginagampanang tungkulin sa TESDA habang ang mga hindi napasama sa first phase ay isasalang sa pagsusuri sa East Avenue Medical Center anumang petsa ngayong taon.

Kabilang naman sa mga tanggapan ng TESDA na nagsagawa din ng drug testing sa kanilang mga empleyado ay ang Region I (252 employees o 87.20%), Region IV (322 o 70%), Region VII (235 o 92.52%), Region X (317 o 89.04%) Region XII (27 o 15.17%) na pawang may mga negatibong resulta sa drug test.

Kumpiyansa din si Mamondiong na susunod ang lahat ng regional offices ng TESDA sa pagpapatupad ng drug test upang maging drug-free ang buong ahensiya at bilang pagtugon sa kampanya ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte laban sa iligal na droga. ###

TESDA OFFICIALS, EMPLOYEES CLEARED IN DRUG TESTS

The campaign of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) against illegal drugs has proven to be successful after its officials and employees were cleared and tested negative of illegal drugs.

TESDA Director General, Secretary Guiling “Gene” Mamondiong led the random drug testing at the TESDA Central Office, TESDA National Capital Region (NCR) and TESDA Region 4-A or Calabarzon (Cavite-Laguna-Batangas-Rizal- Quezon) area.

Mamondiong said that 181 of the 211 (85.78 percent) TESDA officials and employees yielded negative results in the drug tests.

Employees who were chosen for the random drug testing were not able to submit their urine laboratory test because of field work. Those who were not able to join the first phase of the drug testing were advised to take the test at the East Avenue Medical Center in Quezon City anytime this year.
