GENEVA - The International Labour Organization's (ILO) decision to extend its 'Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work' to include a safe working environment will make a real difference to the world's garment workers, according to the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI).

The ILO recently agreed to add a healthy and safe working environment to its 1998 Declaration of Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work - the first addition for a quarter of a century - at its International Labour Conference in Geneva.

"It will make a real difference to working people and supply chains all over the world, but especially in those countries and sectors where life is depressingly cheap and risk to workers is high - from the tea estate workers of Sri Lanka and Southern Africa, to the garment workers across South Asia," said an ETI statement.
