CALIFORNIA – Los Angeles County supervisors have approved a new programme which will see industries including apparel manufacture and hospitality establish health councils to oversee that employers are adhering with COVID-19 safety guidelines.

Garment factories in LA have been amongst the hardest hit by outbreaks of the coronavirus, and it’s no wonder with sites being found to flout social distancing mechanisms despite the risk posed to staff, many of which are migrant women.

“Every worker has the right to feel safe in their workplace and to voice concerns without fear of losing their job,” Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, who authored the motion with Supervisor Sheila Kuehl, said in a statement. “The Public Health Councils and proposed anti-retaliation ordinance will protect thousands of workers and provide the tools desperately needed to curb workplace infections during the pandemic.”
