Health & Safety Guidelines for Workers in Denim Finishing

AAFA has created the following health and safety guidelines, which have been specifically tailored to protect workers in the denim finishing industry, in coordination with the AAFA Safety in Denim Finishing Working Group (Denim Working Group). The group was established to drive positive, sustainable solutions for social responsibility in the denim manufacturing industry. To this end, the purpose of these guidelines is to assist denim finishing facilities in providing a safe and healthy work environment that prevents accidents, injuries, and illnesses that may arise out of, or occur as a result of, the operation of their facilities.

We thank the AAFA Safety in Denim Finishing Working Group for their tremendous expertise, advice, assistance, support, and most of all, dedication, in developing these guidelines. We also thank Sumerra for its critical guidance and expertise in facilitating the creation of the guidelines.
