On May 18, IDH, The Sustainable Trade Initiative launched its Life and Building Safety (LABS) Initiative in Cambodia. Expanding into Cambodia aligns with the program’s ambition to mitigate preventable fire, electrical, and structural building safety risks in key production countries in the sector.
Under the framework of LABS program, IDH has collaborated with the Ministry of Construction (MOC) in Vietnam to develop ‘Technical guideline for Inspection and Assessment of Fire Safety Conditions of garment and footwear industrial factories’ in the country.
With a few new factories joining the Life and Building Safety (LABS) program recently, LABS now has over 100 apparel factories registered.
Life And Building Safety (LABS) Initiative has launched a Helpline in Vietnam and India for the factories associated with the program in both countries.
