The Bureau of Working Conditions (BWC)

The Bureau of Working Conditions (BWC) is responsible for the formulation and development of labor standards in the areas of hours of work, occupational safety and health, and other conditions of employment.

In May 1982, the Bureau of Labor Standards, which was created in June 1957 under Reorganization Plan No. 20-A, was renamed the Bureau of Working Conditions. The BWC performs all functions in relation to the formulation of policies and enforcement of labor standards performed by the then Wage Administrative Service and the Industrial Safety Division of the Bureau of Labor.

The Bureau of Working Conditions envisions well-guided employers and workers committed to a safe, healthful, and productive work environment, adaptive to industry trends and developments, and equitably enjoying the gains of joint endeavors.
