Is Labor Compliance Related to Shop Floor Control?

· Labor Compliance,Manufacturing,Shop Floor

When I hear the words “Labor Compliance”, I think of paying fair wages and providing proper and healthy working conditions.

Maintaining labor compliance protects both the employee and the employer. While the laws spell out the requirements, legal protection is for those that obey and follow by the law.

TexTempo is an agent for a Shopfloor Control solution that allows a company to digitally track direct and indirect labor, hourly and incentive pay. Each plant can report individually or report on the entire company, multiple plants. Additionally, you can report on your bill of labor per order, bundle, or item. You have complete flexibility. Quick access to your digital labor information can be the beginning of your company’s journey for a code of conduct compliance program across your entire supply chain whether you are producing your product or having it produced elsewhere.

What is your company’s code of conduct compliance program? Are you independently certified?

The Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production organization, otherwise known as WRAP, is the “standard most often cited” for social compliance certification. The roots of WRAP trace back to the American Apparel Manufacturers Association (now the American Apparel and Footwear Association). Today, WRAP is a global leader in social compliance and a trusted independent supply chain partner around the world. There are over 2,300 WRAP certified facilities around the world employing over 2 million workers.

They have developed 12 principles that are based on generally accepted workplace standards.

  1. Compliance with Laws and Workplace Regulations
  2. Prohibition of Forced Labor
  3. Prohibition of Child Labor
  4. Prohibition of Harassment or Abuse
  5. Compensation and Benefits
  6. Hours of Work
  7. Prohibition of Discrimination
  8. Health and Safety
  9. Freedom of Association and Collective Bargaining
  10. Environment
  11. Customs Compliance
  12. Security

The WRAP Principles are based on generally accepted international workplace standards, local laws and workplace regulations, and include the spirit or language of relevant conventions of the International Labor Organization (ILO). The Principles encompass human resources management, health and safety, environmental practices, and legal compliance including import/export and customs compliance and security standards.
