Pakistan to launch Workplace Safety Programme for textile industry workers

To ensure health and safety of Pakistan’s textile and garment industry workers, a comprehensive Workplace Safety Programme (WSP) is being launched by the signatories to the International Accord for Health and Safety in the Textile and Garment Industry.

The programme will cover Pakistan’s garments and textile suppliers, helping the country improve the industry like that of Bangladesh and other signatories to the accord.

The decision to expand the programme to Pakistan was announced during a signatory brand caucus meeting held on December 14 in Amsterdam.

Brands will receive an information package on the Pakistan Accord and will be invited to sign it on January 16, 2023, said a press release issued on December 14.
