GIPI Riau Islands DPD and BPJS Employment Work on Improving Tourism HR Quality
Recently the GIPI Board of Riau Islands DPD was appointed three days ago by the Governor of Riau Islands H Nurdin Basirun, as if he did not want to waste time directly cooperating with the Nagoya Batam Employment BPJS headed by Surya Rizal. There are many forms of cooperation that have been agreed upon by both parties for the welfare of the community, especially Tourism in the city of Batam.
The Chairperson of GIPI Riau Islands DPD Tupa Simanjuntak, who was accompanied by Deputy Chairperson of Government, Institution, Industry and Investment, Fakhrul Rizal, Coordinator of the Government of Martius and Deputy Chair of Maritime Affairs Surya Wijaya had prepared a precise strategy to improve the quality of Tourism HR.
Together with BPJS Employment, GIPI Riau Islands DPD immediately conducts trainings and has awareness about work safety for all tourism people who are sheltered in the Riau Islands DPD GIPI.
Surya Rizal informed that the opening of the BPU program itself had a background that was explained by BPJS Employment, which was due to the minimal interest of the self-employed people. Furthermore, according to the BPJS, these independent workers are indeed eligible to enter BPJS TK participants because they can already be considered as breadwinners.
In fact, according to the BPJS TK, these informal workers should get BPJS TK services, but unfortunately their interest or interest is still lacking.
There is an interesting thing from the BPU program itself for the participants. And this interesting thing should make these independent workers more enthusiastic to register.
THE INTERESTING THING OF THE BPU PROGRAM IS PROVIDED WITH SPECIAL FACILITIES THAT ARE NOT HAVING BY TK BPJS PARTICIPANTS FROM CATEGORIES OF PARTICIPANTS OF FIXED WORKERS OR IF ALSO COMPARED TO JAMKESMAS OR JAMKESDA.
Some of the facilities that will be obtained by independent workers from the BPU program include:
1. Getting Treatment and Treatment Facilities If you experience a work accident, workers have the right to get treatment facilities, in a government hospital for the first class, which can reach Rp20 million. According to the TK BPJS, the Rp20 million figure turned out to be able to change to an infinite number. This alone has been discussed and there are already operational guidelines and guidelines.
2. Get a Full Cover If you cannot work, the TK BPJS will cover in full according to the income reported. For example, the worker has a work accident and cannot work for three months, so for three months it will be covered, according to the reported income.
3. Get Guaranteed of Death Other interesting facilities that will be obtained by self-employed workers are guaranteed death. If the person who dies usually dies, the heirs get IDR 21 million. But if the participant dies because of a work accident, then they will get 48 times the income that becomes a benchmark.
4. Cheap and Affordable Contributions Finally, the attractive facilities that can be obtained by independent workers from the BPU program are cheap and affordable fees. Indeed, the presence of the BPJS has been very cheap for the size of guarantees like the concept of insurance, but for the BPU program it is only charged 1 percent of income for collateral for workplace accidents and for the death insurance itself will be charged 0.30 percent.
In addition to the programs related to the improvement of Tourism HR above, BPJS Employment is also committed to jointly developing tourist destinations in Batam city including jointly creating “Sadar Market, Sadar Mall and Sadar Village”. Awareness of all tourism people to the tourism industry regarding occupational safety is expected to bring increased work performance and lead to the welfare of the workers themselves.
