Life and Building Safety Initiative

The Life and Building Safety (LABS) Initiative is an industry-driven program, in which multiple brands and retailers are joining forces with public organizations to operate a scalable program to mitigate preventable fire, electrical and structural safety risks in key apparel and footwear producing countries in a targeted way.

The Life and Building Safety Initiative aims to improve worker safety in the apparel and footwear industry by effectively identifying and remediating the most pressing risks related to fire, electrical, and structural building safety and evacuation. LABS Initiative does this through developing a single country based, coherent and consistent life-safety program to assess factories and provide a framework for monitoring and ensuring mitigation and remediation.

Under LABS Initiative, in addition to applicable country laws, factories commit to adhering to a harmonized, country level standard around fire, electrical and building safety. To bring this about, together with technical experts and local stakeholders, LABS is working on the following:
  • The development of a harmonized reference Standard for the countries in which LABS Initiative operates.
  • A root cause analysis of building safety risks.
  • Growing a vetted and trained pool of local experts for assessments, drafting CAPs, and remediation.

For effective monitoring of the program’s progress, LABS Initiative is working with Fair Factories Clearinghouse (FFC). Together with FFC, LABS Initiative is creating a database to support the onboarding of and service provision to factories, as well as monitor progress and gather the information for public reporting.
