The Accord trains and supports joint labour-management Safety Committees at factories producing for Accord signatory companies. Functioning safety committees are key to making sure the aims of the Accord continue to be realised after the five year agreement and for the long term.
Building these committees and making them effective in addressing and monitoring safety and health issues on a day-to-day basis is a central focus of the Accord training efforts.
The Accord Safety Committee and Safety Training Program consists of the following key components:
• Initial Meeting with factory management and signatories
• All Employee safety informational sessions
• 7 Session Safety Committee Training Curriculum
• Ongoing support for effective functioning of Safety Committees
