The Sindh Labor Department, in collaboration with the International Labor Organization, the Employers’ Federation of Pakistan and the Pakistan Workers’ Federation, is organising a consultation on “Promoting Workplace Safety & Health in Sindh” on December 6 at a local hotel in Karachi.
The moot will help towards developing a joint action plan for promoting awareness on workplace safety and health. The consultation will generate recommendations from stakeholders and help develop a plan of action to reduce the chances of a reoccurrence of factory fires like the in Baldia town tragedy.
The workshop will also help secure a joint statement of commitment from employers, workers and the government in helping adoption of safety measures for workers at their workplaces.
