The latest phreatic explosion of Taal Volcano should prompt not only the government but the private sector to suspend work for the meantime.

Senator Risa Hontiveros made the appeal for work suspension among private sector workers to keep them safe from the ashfall emitted by Taal.

“Government work & classes have been suspended. Private companies should follow suit,” she tweeted.

“Ashfall is a great health risk. Pwedeng magka-respiratory problems & skin irritation kung may prolonged exposure. Please do not require employees to get to work. Safety first!” she said.

The government earlier raised Alert level 4 or possible hazardous eruption of Taal Volcano.
