Training-of-Trainers Workshop for Factory Dialogue Programme

Training-of-Trainers Workshop for Factory Dialogue Programme
22-24 August 2016
The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH will be launching a dialogue training programme in Cambodian garment factories.

The aim of this programme is to improve occupational health and safety standards in Cambodian textile and garment factories by building and enhancing dialogue structures between workers and managers. In preparation for the launch of the programme, we invite representatives from your organisation to attend a Training-of-Trainer Workshop in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

The aim of the TOT is to teach the unique PROSPERe2e™ training methodology. This is an innovative dialogue training approach that develops workers' and managers' capacity to engage in dialogue to jointly identify problems and come up with realistic, implementable solutions that improve working conditions.

Trainers may be selected from among the TOT participants to lead the GIZ programme’s training in factories. Please find details of the TOT workshop below:
Date: August 22-24, 2016
Time: 9am - 5pm (including time for lunch and breaks)
Participants: Representatives from various Cambodian training organisations, consultancies and NGOs, representatives from GIZ and representatives from Sustainability Agents SUSA GmbH
Language: English
Venue: To be announced

Participation Criteria
In order to ensure a high level of peer learning, we are seeking participants who are innovative, flexible and committed to bringing about change. We prefer trainers who are already involved with social compliance and/or who have experience with worker health and safety. Special preference will be given to trainers who have experience working with workers (particularly women) and with Chinese language skills.

If interested, please send the Curriculum Vitae of trainers and a brief description of interest for the TOT to Amna Yamin ( The maximum number of participants is restricted to 25.

Dialogue for Health and Safety Strong workers, strong factory

GIZ aims to improve the level of Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) within textile and garment factories producing in Cambodia by building and enhancing dialogue structures between workers and managers. For substantive and sustainable improvements to be made, both managers and workers have to be integrated through dialogue in the change processes.

The German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) has commissioned the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH to carry out the project entitled Social and Labour Standards in the Textile and Garment Sector in Asia. The aim of the project is for state and private-sector actors in the textile and garment industry in Asia to use new forms of information, dialogue and cooperation in supporting compliance with labour and social standards. Cambodia is one of the project’s pilot countries.

Training Content
The Dialogue for Health and Safety Programme uses a training package created by Sustainability Agents SUSA GmbH that has been successfully implemented in the textile and consumer goods industries. The core principle of this PROSPERe2e™ training programme is the joint involvement of workers and managers in information-exchange and decision-making processes, with the goal of sustainably and holistically addressing the root causes of precarious working conditions. A topical focus will be placed on Occupational Health and Safety (OHS). By jointly identifying and solving OHS-related problems, workers and managers are empowered to sustainably improve the safety of their workplaces. To facilitate such cooperation, training participants (workers and managers, jointly) learn and apply the PROSPERe2e™ 7-Step Solution-Finding Cycle. In addition, OHSrelated communication platforms are established or improved in the factories for sustainable change. Effective communication between managers and workers leads to cooperative behaviour and mutual understanding.

Project Goals

  • Improve the level of OHS
  • Improve worker-management relations
  • Generate wider public health benefits
  • Enable workers and managers to jointly solve workplace-related problems
  • Establish in-house worker-manager communication structures

Key Facts

  1. Project begin: August 2016
  2. Duration: 1 year
  3. Number of factories: 10
  4. Number of trainers: 3

Training Activities and Schedule
The training programme consists of six one-day trainings ”􀈊Factory Visits􀈋) in participating factories. The below schedule is tentative. The topical focus of the first four Factory Visits is set and factories can select the training topics for Factory Visits 4 and 5 from four topics. This modular design offers flexibility to react to factories’ specific training needs. It is crucial that both workers and managers attend the trainings.

August 2016
Baseline Assessment : The programme is introduced to the factory and a baseline assessment is conducted in order to identify the level of OHS and areas where special attention is needed.

October 2016
Training on Hazard Identification and Prioritisation: Workers and managers learn how to identify hazards at their workplace and in the factory and to classify and prioritize them. The PROSPERe2e™ 7-Step Solution-Finding Cycle is introduced and applied.

December 2016
Training on the OHS-related Communication Structure: OHS-related communication channels and platforms, including the OHS and Fire Safety Committees (if existent), are discussed and analysed.

February 2017
Workers’ Health Participants explore how nutrition influences their health and wellbeing as well as what to do in case of sickness. A special focus is put on maternal health
Housekeeping The training builds on the learnings from previous trainings on hazard identification and possibly fire safety.

April 2017
Hygiene and Sanitation Workers and managers explore the impact of hygiene and sanitation on their lives and those of their families’

Fire Safety Workers and managers reflect on the causes of a fire and learn how to identify and prioritise fire hazards in the factory.

June 2017
Impact Assessment: An impact assessment is carried out to determine each factory’s progress in relation to the baseline assessment.

The Dialogue for Health and Safety Programme will be designed and executed by a consultancy and training services provider located in Berlin, Germany. SUSA specialises in the improved implementation of social and labour standards at production sites, in a range of industries. SUSA’s expertise in workermanager dialogue is based on more than 15 years of experience in the field.

Local trainers, who are experts on social standards and have a deep understanding of the challenges in  Cambodia, will conduct trainings in your factory. The trainers receive continuous coaching from SUSA  during the project, and SUSA itself will be present at some trainings. GIZ assumes all costs for the project. Factories only bear the cost of foregone production and implementation costs of agreed-upon improvement measures.
