GENEVA - The International Labour Organization (ILO) has linked up with sportswear giant Nike for a new initiative to cut road deaths and injuries among commuting garment and footwear workers.

The joint project aims to understand why garment and footwear workers are so vulnerable to injuries and deaths resulting from road accidents and to lessen the adverse impact on workers, their families and the industry.

Garment and footwear sector workers are disproportionately represented among the 1.3 million people who are killed and up to 50 million injured worldwide on roads every year, according to Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) data.
