The project follows the International Return on Prevention (RoP) Study, which already includes 19 countries and 337 participating companies.
In addition, a Practical Training of Labour Inspectors for the Textile and Garment Industry in Punjab was performed following the pilot seminar from 2015.
Training Approach and Contents
Pakistan has enhanced access for exporting goods to the European market under the Generalized System of Preferences Plus (GSP+). For maintaining GSP+ status, Pakistan must proof sustainable development in putting core labour standards in occupational safety and health into practice. The RoP Study contributes to this by providing inter alia baseline figures for social compliance as key performance indicators within companies. A RoP Country Report will be published, accompanied by press releases and road shows.
