A digital training tool designed to educate garment workers about their rights and responsibilities is being rolled out across 50 factories in China, including those used by fashion and sportswear brands including Lindex, Filippa K, MQ and Intersport.

The learning platform developed by Swedish company QuizRR was piloted last autumn and will also be extended to suppliers and buyers in Bangladesh during the coming year.

Using local language educational films and quizzes, it aims to teach factory workers about their rights in a fun, flexible and efficient way.

The training covers several areas including health and safety, fire and building safety, workplace dialogue and employment policies – with the content based on international conventions, codes from global companies and industry associations as well as local laws and regulations.

The supplier can carry out the training at any time and level, measure and share results with customers, and make sure that all employees know their rights and responsibilities.

Ultimately, increased knowledge can lead to stability, sustainable production and long-term relations, QuizRR says.

"QuizRR has great potential to strengthen and train workers in their rights," explains says Anna-Karin Dahlberg, production support manager at Lindex, which participated in the development of the training aid and currently uses it at five suppliers in China.

"It's an important area for us at Lindex and our goal is to work with our suppliers to create a positive change. QuizRR could become an important tool to drive change."

The new initiative was unveiled in Shanghai to more than 140 representatives from factories, brands, agencies and organisations.

Participating clothing factories include Martin Emprex Textiles (Zhongshan - China), Lindex 2016 Jiaxing Silk, Kashion industry, GuiXiang Knitting, Fuyang Deyuan Garment Factory, Fa Tin Textile & Fashion, Dong Guan Mulun Knitting Factory, Dongguan Austra Garment Limited Qiaozi Branch Factory, City TangXia Knitting Factory, Xize Fashion Accessories, Wuxi Qisheng Knitted Gloves Factory, and Shanghai Velvet Garment & Adornment.
