This is the first training on child labour prevention that has been organized by the ILO-Better Factories Cambodia. The one-day training will run for another two days (6 and 7 March). On each day, nearly 100 participants including Chinese will participate.
Mr. Nov Dara, Senior Training Officer for ILO-Better Factories Cambodia, said the purpose of the training is to equip factory staff with the knowledge on child labour issue and to provide them with some essential methods to prevent child labour recruitment in their workplaces.
The training sessions included presentations by BFC’s trainers and monitors, experience-sharing by participants, role play on how to detect underage workers, and group discussions.
Mr. Veng Heang, Director of the Child Labour Department of the Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training, cautioned against factories employing underage workers stating that it impacts negatively on the image of both the factories and of Cambodia as a whole.
