We check social working conditions.

Child labour, inhumane working hours, starvation wages, discrimination and reprisals: especially in textile production, the consumer is confronted again and again with these and other inhumane conditions. The shirt can still be so white - if the working conditions are not right, you risk a flaw that cannot be cleaned up by any chemistry.

Make a mark and show that the manufacturing conditions in your production facilities are both sustainable and socially responsible and that you also comply with all the safety measures required at work: with our OEKO-TEX® STeP certificate.

What we check.

  • Socially acceptable working conditions in line with UN and ILO conventions
  • Health and safety at the workplace
  • Freedom of assembly for employees
  • Exclusion of child labour
  • No discrimination of employees
  • Payment of fair wages
  • Internal communication and clear responsibilities
  • Safety of buildings and production systems
  • Risk aversion
  • Regular employee training on the topic of safety at the workplace and social aspects
