Light Rail Manila Corp. (LRMC) has received a safety certification from the local government of Pasay for its train stations and depot, buttressing its efforts to provide passengers with a safe transportation system amid the pandemic.
LRMC Head of Health Safety, Environment, and Quality Department Louernie De Sales said the Safety Seal Certification is an assurance that the Light Rail Transit (LRT) Line 1 complies with the public health standards to contain Covid-19.
“In LRMC, safety is part of our mission for our dear commuters and employees. We are not just their partners in efficient and comfortable journey, but for safety as well. The Safety Seal that we received from the City of Pasay is just a testament that we are one with the government’s effort in encouraging safety of the public as the country gradually opens the economy amid the Covid-19 pandemic,” she said.
She added that this certification further challenges LRMC to innovate even amid the crisis.
“We treat this as a milestone putting on top of mind the safety of our commuters as we slowly increase the capacity of our trains in line with guidelines set by the government,” De Sales said.
