On June 21, Building Responsibly will release the Worker Welfare Principles at a stakeholder event in London. These Principles lay out the group’s collective perspective on, and intended commitment to, promoting the rights and welfare of workers in the engineering and construction industry. The objective of having the Worker Welfare Principles is to align expectations and spur company and stakeholder action around these key areas of worker vulnerability.
Over the next three years, these Principles will provide a framework for the future development of good practice notes, implementation guides, and tools. They will also provide a key framework for engaging with subcontractors, governments, and other entities in the construction and engineering value chain.
For more information about Building Responsibly and the Worker Welfare Principles, please contact the Secretariat, BSR.
