Protection and safeguard of human resources are crucial for the Company, which has consolidated its commitment on this issue by achieving the OHSAS 18001 Certification on health and safety management for its Osmannoro headquarter.
In 2019 Salvatore Ferragamo has obtained, for all the Italian operations, the SA8000 certification. The SA8000 international standard covers the social accountability aspects of a management system and encourages organizations to develop, maintain and apply practices that incorporate respect for human rights and workers, protection against child labour and health and safety.
Salvatore Ferragamo has joined the International Labor Organization, International Organization of Employers and the International Trade Union Conference, IndustriALL Global Union, employers’ organisations and other brands to call for action in order to support the rights of garment workers and manufacturers throughout the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Brand is committed to protect garment workers’ income, health and employment, while calling for jointly working on sustainable systems of social protection for a fairer and more resilient garment industry.
