LABS Initiative is an Industry-driven program in which you as a brand and retailer, will be joining forces together with public and civil society organizations in driving the factories showing their commitment towards responsible sourcing and creating safer workspaces.
Fire, Electrical and Structural Safety assessments are one of the critical elements under LABS Initiative for increasing workplace safety for workers in the apparel and footwear industry. As an inspection firm, you will be involved in conducting these assessments as per the requirements of LABS Standards and Methodology.
Each brand has its own safety guidelines and working with multiple brands would mean that as a factory, you would need to comply with the guidelines by all the brands you are in business with. With universal safety guidelines, LABS Initiative promotes workplace safety and provides additional opportunity for the factories to do business with all brands that are associated with LABS.
Safety trainings are an important aspect of the LABS Initiative, as it plays an integral role in keeping the workplaces safe. As a safety firm, you will be engaged in training factory workers on safe working practices.
