Social Audit - Anti Child Labor Checks

Child Labour Audit


The Social Audit were created in 1989 by SAI (Social Accountability International). The purpose of SA8000 is to promote, develop and maintain workplace practices that are socially acceptable.

While the standard targets all companies from any country it is of particular importance in Low Cost Producer countries where laws and cultures are not robust enough to protect employees from exploitation.

The areas covered during a Social Audit include:

  • Factory Overview and Management Systems
  • Child labor
  • Discrimination
  • Disciplinary practices
  • Forced Labour and Compulsary Labour
  • Freedom of association and collective bargaining
  • Management systems
  • Occupational Health and Safety
  • Working hours and compensation
  • Remuneration
  • Review Subcontractors
