EU support for safer workplaces

EU support for safer workplaces
The EU has announced support for safer workplaces and fair production in producing countries.

The fund will support joint activities of governments, businesses, social partners and NGOs in the low-income countries where goods are made, to:

  • reduce and prevent workplace-related deaths;
  • improve labour inspections;
  • ensure fair production; and
  • help workers to exercise their rights.
It will get its funding from both public and private contributions and will be managed by the International Labour Organisation (ILO). Its first pilot activities will start in 2016, focusing on the ready-made garment sectors of selected producing countries.

For more information, see the European Commission website.
