Yes, that's called preventive suspension, given for a maximum of 30 days.
SECTION 3. Preventive suspension. — The employer may place the worker concerned under preventive suspension if his continued employment poses a serious and imminent threat to the life or property of the employer or of his co-workers.
SECTION 4. Period of suspension. — No preventive suspension shall last longer than 30 days. The employer shall thereafter reinstate the worker in his former or in a substantially equivalent position or the employer may extend the period of suspension provided that during the period of extension, he pays the wages and other benefits due to the worker. In such case, the worker shall not be bound to reimburse the amount paid to him during the extension if the employer decides, after completion of the hearing, to dismiss the worker.
Did they give you the notice on paper, stating therein also that you would be put on preventive suspension?

30 days is maximum.
if you did not go to work anymore then you could be considered AWOL if they ask you to report for the hearing, and they can make a decision based on existing evidence.
