TRAINING COURSES


Labor Rights Courses

Verité’s years of social audit, consultation, and training experiences indicate that many workers still lack basic knowledge and information of their rights and interests. For example, knowledge and information on workplace rights and obligations, how wages are calculated, what statutory benefits there are, what to do when work-related injuries and occupational diseases occur and how complaints are filed etc. The result is that workers are likely placed in a more vulnerable condition.
In the Labor Rights series, stories will be delivered vividly via micro-films and animated cartoons, so as to let participants understand their own labor rights and hence make use of existing channels to better protect themselves.

Occupational Health and Safety Courses

Verité’s research shows that most supply chain factories lack effective methods and resources to provide workers with occupational health and safety (OHS) training closely related to their own interests and well-being. Even if they provide training, few are able to meet the government's requirement of providing new recruited employees with 24 class hours of three-level safety training before assigning them to their posts. At the same time, workers have limited access to the training, resources, social support and opportunities provided by factories and they are facing great risks in terms of safe production and occupational health. Verité’s online training courses systematically and comprehensively cover the areas of OHS general knowledge and skills, common occupational diseases and prevention, common workplace accidents and injuries and prevention, as well as laws and regulations on labor protection. The online courses are short and interesting. Factories can flexibly organize worker learning according to their own production arrangements and needs.
A series of OHS courses presented in the forms of video, cartoon and text will enable frontline workers to systematically learn the OHS knowledge and skills and improve their behaviors on work safety and self-efficacy. It is expected that work-related accidents and injuries will be prevented and avoided, and that workers are free from occupational diseases.

Life Skills Courses

Verité’s years of experience shows that mere training of occupational skills is unable to meet workers’ needs. Helping workers better integrate into urban life, demonstrate decent employment and all-round development, achieve a more dignified life, and transition from being a farmer to an urban resident are serious needs. These are also very good measures for enhancing employee stability. In recent years, development of the labor market and corporate social responsibility have also made enterprises aware that in addition to creating a positive working environment for employees, a positive living environment is also important. Improving employee care by increasing physical hygiene, preventing infectious diseases, nutrition and health, stress management and family financial management, can help employees build a positive and harmonious family and living environment, thus forming a strong partnership with enterprises.
In the Life Skills series, participants can learn about important life skills through vivid and interesting micro-films and animated cartoons.
