      This project ensures that reader-friendly ECP materials are continually developed. This involves three important activities, namely: (1) Development and printing of information materials such as flyers, posters, ads, audio visual presentation materials and other related information; (2) Publication of The ECC Reporter designed to inform ECC publics of the latest on employees’ compensation policies, case decisions, OSH research findings on work contingency prevention and others; and (3) Re-printing and distribution of existing IEC materials.

    3. Intensification of Information Dissemination on the ECP through Seminars, Training and One-on-One Services
      This involves the conduct of seminars/lectures on the ECP and OSH right at the workplaces in coordination with the employers and the employees’ unions. Target participants of ECP seminars/lectures are rank and file workers, labor union representatives and human resource officers. Another important project is the Public Assistance Center (PAC) which is designed to provide personalized assistance/information to walk-in clients on how and where to file EC claim or the follow-up of the status of their claims pending at the SSS or GSIS or at the ECC and other related matters. PAC is located at the ECC ground floor for this purpose and was operationalized since 2005.
