Top Glove resolves 11 ILO forced labour indicators

Six of the 11 indicators were resolved in March.

Rubber glove manufacturer Top Glove has announced that it has resolved all 11 indicators of forced labour that were noted by the International Labour Organisation (ILO).

According to the announcement, the resolution of the ILO indicators has been verified by independent international UK consultant Impactt Limited. Top Glove has engaged ethical trade consultancy Impactt since July 2020 to advise on measures to improve its labour policies.

The identified ILO indicators are abuse of vulnerability, retention of identity documents, restriction of movement, excessive overtime, abusive working and living conditions, deception, isolation, debt bondage, withholding of wages, physical and sexual violence, and intimidation.

Six of the 11 indicators were resolved the previous month.

The manufacturer noted that whilst it is pleased to have resolved the ILO indicators of forced labour, it assures stakeholders of its continued efforts to improve the welfare of employees.

“Top Glove remains committed to be the best company that it can become, ensuring high quality welfare, health, safety, working conditions, and living accommodations of its 21,000 strong workforce,” the company said.
