German discount retailer KiK is extending efforts to improve the safety of garment workers in Pakistan by rolling out the first building, electrical and fire prevention assessments at its supplier factories in the country.
German retailer KiK says it has completed its commitment to pay compensation to the survivors and families of workers killed in the Ali Enterprises garment factory fire, Pakistan's worst industrial accident.
After four years of campaigning and months of negotiations, an agreement has finally been reached to pay compensation of more than US$5m to the survivors and families of workers killed in a fire at the Ali Enterprises garment factory, Pakistan’s worst industrial accident.
The International Labour Organization (ILO) is to step in to try to speed up the process of delivering compensation for the victims of a deadly clothing factory fire in Pakistan four years ago.
