MANILA, Philippines - A Filipino professional received an award in the United Arab Emirates for his idea on creating a technical-information comics for health and safety.
Manuel Perito received the prestigious IDEAS.ARABIA award organized by the Dubai Quality Group for his creative project called, “Super Oman."
The 37-year-old civil engineer from Samar was given the award last April 22 at the Mina Salam Hotel at Madinat Jumeirah in Dubai.
Safety Officer, Ronald Vibario e-mailed GMANews.TV on Thursday regarding Perito’s victory adding that the Filipino community there is proud of his achievement.
A member of the Philippine Society of Safety Professionals in UAE, Perito has been with the Oman Insurance Company for more than three years as a Risk Engineer.
Perito deals with loss control and risk management for property insurance clients.
“I used to know him dabbing as a Komiks writer and illustrator while working as risk surveyor for Malayan Insurance back in the Philippines so I was not surprised when he injected comics in his technical job," said Vibario. GMANews.TV
