In 2019, The Centre for Child Rights and Business and Fast Retailing conducted a child and juvenile labour risk assessment and launched a support programme for the main factories used for Fast Retailing production located in Myanmar. The aim of the assessment was to identify risks in their supply chain and based on the findings, develop a support package for factory management to build their capacity to prevent all instances of non-compliance in relation to child and juvenile labour.
The following activities were performed:
Assessment of risks including juvenile and young worker non-compliance
Development of toolkit for the factory management including legal fact sheet, checklists, list of suitable workstations and young worker management guideline
Development of action plan with suggested activities to ensure proper and sustainable management of juvenile and young workers
Tailor-made training for senior management on child labour prevention and remediation and young worker management including final confirmation of action plan and related activities
