MANILA, May 25 --  The Occupational Safety and Health Center  and its extension offices in the regions are ready to receive inquiries and complaints on safety and health in the workplace, the Department of Labor and Employment said in a statement. "We need to inform, educate, and accustom our workers and employers, as well as the general public, on occupational safety and health, so they can be aware and vigilant.
