 Fifty Chinese fashion factories are included in a project, five of which are suppliers to Lindex, in a project to educate textile workers of their rights.

After a successful pilot in autumn 2015, Lindex scales up its efforts in the project.

QuizRR, in close cooperation with, among others, Lindex, developed a digital tool to educate factory workers of their rights and responsibilities with the aim to increase the prospects for safe working conditions and safe workplaces. The training covers several areas; health and safety, fire and building safety, workplace dialogue and employment policies. The content is based on international conventions, codes from global companies and industry associations and local laws and regulations.

”QuizRR has great potential to strengthen and train workers in their rights. It is an important area for us at Lindex and our goal is to work with our suppliers to create positive change. QuizRR could become a tool to drive this forward, ”says Anna-Karin Dahlberg, Production Support Manager at Lindex, in a press release.

The new initiative was announced at a kick-off meeting in Shanghai with representatives from factories, brands, agencies and organizations. Right now over fifty factories in China are included in the project, five of which are suppliers to Lindex.

The next step for QuizRR is to establish itself in other key markets for textile production, of which Bangladesh is next in line.
