Vietnam garment workers take lessons in fire prevention

May '13
The Fourth Safety Fun Run organized in Vietnam’s southernmost province of Binh Duong by Better Work Vietnam attracted participation of over 3,600 garment workers.
 
The focus of the annual event this time was "Putting Fire Safety First". 
 
The event was meant to generate awareness regarding ways to avert fire incidences in the country’s garment factories by fortifying the ties between employers, employees, buyers and the community.
 
The event also provided a platform to the participants to share their views on preventive measures to avoid fire incidences.
 
Vietnam each year witnesses over 1,600 factory fires, claiming lives and causing injuries to several workers, while inflicting severe damage to the enterprises. The latest fire incident at a garment factory in the northern province of Bac Giang damaged thousands of vehicles of workers, and also the factory premises. 
 
All participants at the event were given a copy of Better Work Vietnam’s booklet on Fire Safety, narrating the key ways to prevent or fight fires at home and at the workplace.
 
Focusing on improving the working conditions for workers and boosting sustainable competitiveness of the country’s apparel sector, Better Work Vietnam is an extended arm of the Better Work Global Programme. 
 
The Better Work Global Programme is a joint venture of the International Finance Corporation (IFC) and the International Labour Organization (ILO).
