ILO to inspect Vietnamese textile enterprises

Over the next five months, the Vietnamese labour ministry and experts from the International Labour Organisation (ILO) will inspect hundreds of garment and textile enterprises across 12 provinces and cities, a leading Vietnamese newspaper reported.

The inspections will look into factories' working conditions and training courses for workers.

Statistics published by the ministry of labour, invalids and social affairs showed that more than 80 per cent of textile and garment enterprises inspected in 2014 violated policies about working duration, rest periods and other labour safety regulations.

Vu Kim Hue, project officer of ILO Country Office for Vietnam, said that industry enterprises push hard to meet contract deadlines, entailing large amounts of overtime for labourers who are also often not equipped with protective gear.

The inspections are not aimed at punishing violators, she said, but instead on helping companies conform to labour safety regulations and improve working conditions for their workers.

The ministry and ILO representatives also hope to use the inspections as a chance to improve the knowledge and skills of labour inspectors.

These labour inspectors are responsible for supporting and supervising garment companies to ensure proper labour conditions and workers' rights.

About 360 garment and textile enterprises will be inspected for workers' hours, rest periods, salary, bodily protection, warning signs, fire prevention equipment and other tools to ensure safety for labourers, the report said. (SH)
