Filipino in Dubai won special award for a comics project at Ideas Arabia 2008 for Health & Safety Category

Ronald Vibal sent this info in my email and he want to share this winning glory to everyone. Thanks Ronald! and Congratulations to Manuel.

I am forwarding you to share the triumph of one Filipino in Dubai, a member of our PSSP Group (Phil. Society of Safety Professionals) in United Arab Emirates.
As we are proud of his achievement in the recent IDEAS.ARABIA 2008 organised by Dubai Quality Group, a prestigious award given every year for brightest ideas suggested by employees from any UAE establishment, I felt that he deserves to be featured in your pages or website.
The awardee, Mr. Manuel (Mike) Perito, 37 yo. Civil Engineer alumni of TIP-Manila, a true-blue Samareno, is bonafide and active member of PSSP organisation in UAE. He has been with Oman Insurance Company for more than 3 years working as Risk Engineer who deals with loss control and risk management for property insurance clients carrying out his job by spreading safety and risk control awareness through information dissemination and innovated it by using the KOMIKS way. 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. His creativity was first noted when his employer, Oman Insurance Co. awarded him an appreciation trophy for his creative project called ‘Super Oman’ technical-info comics.
And last April 22, 2008, he was finally recognized for his creative project SUPER OMAN as Dubai Quality Group named him one of the winners in IDEAS.ARABIA 2008 held in Mina Salam Hotel at Madinat Jumeirah.
