    • Safeguarding compliance with supplier codes of conduct : Investigating how buying organizations ensure the compliance of suppliers with higher bargaining power

      Hyyryläinen, Heidi; Löfgren, Erica (Uppsala universitet, Företagsekonomiska institutionenUppsala universitet, Företagsekonomiska institutionen, 2014)
      An increasing number of companies are using Supplier Codes of Conduct to ensure socially responsible behavior in their supply chains. Previous research on SCCs have focused on powerful brand owning multinational corporations and have concluded that a cooperative approach, the cooperation model, has yielded better results than a more traditional approach based on monitoring and sanctions, the compliance model. This study will investigate how organizations with low bargaining power use these two approaches to SCCs to get suppliers to comply with their SCCs, and how this is influenced by the organizations purchasing strategy towards that supplier. Semi structured interviews were conducted with 9 diverse Swedish organizations that use SCCs. The results of the study reveal that the buying organizations focus their efforts on certain suppliers that are selected using different criteria. The results do not conflict with previous findings, however, no strong support for the previous findings is observed either. The results of the study suggest that strong bargaining power is well suited with the compliance model.

    • Safety and Health in Construction

      International Labour Organization (ILO) (International Labour Organization (ILO), 1992)
      "In accordance with the decision taken by the Governing Body of the ILO at its 244th Session (November 1989), a meeting of experts was convened in Geneva from 12 to 19 March 1991 to draw up a code of practice on safety and health in construction. The meeting was composed of 21 experts, seven appointed following consultations with governments, seven following consultations with the Employers' group and seven following consultations with the Workers' group of the Governing Body. After examining and finalising the text, based on a draft prepared by the Office, the experts adopted this code. The practical recommendations of this code of practice are intended for the use of all those, both in public and the private sectors, who have responsibility for safety and health in construction. The code is not intended to replace national laws or regulations or accepted standards. It has been drawn up with the object of providing guidance to those who may be engaged in the framing of provisions of this kind; in particular, governmental or other public authorities, committees, management or employers' and workers' organisations in this industrial sector."
    • Safety in the use of Chemicals at Work

      International Labour Organization (ILO) (International Labour Organization (ILO), 1993)
      "After examining and finalising the text, based on a draft prepared by the Office, the experts adopted this code of practice. The code provides practical guidance on the implementation of the provisions of the Chemicals Convention, 1990 (No. 170), and Recommendation, 1990 (No. 177), and is not intended to discourage competent authorities from adopting higher standards. The practical recommendations of this code of practice are intended for the use of all those who have a responsibility for safety in the use of chemicals. The code is not intended to replace national laws, regulations or accepted standards. Its object is to provide guidance to those who may be engaged in the framing of provisions relating to the use of chemicals at work such as competent authorities, the management of companies where chemicals are supplied or used, and emergency services. The code should also offer guidelines to suppliers’, employers’ and workers’ organisations."
    • Safety Nets or Safety Ropes? Dynamic Benefit Incidence of Two Crisis Programs in IndonesiaSafety Nets or Safety Ropes? Dynamic Benefit Incidence of Two Crisis Programs in Indonesia

      Sumarto, Sudarno; Suryahadi, Asep; Pritchett, Lant (Elsevier, 2003-07)
      We extend the standard concept of static benefit incidence to dynamic benefit incidence––the relationship between program benefits and changes in household expenditures. Using panel data we compare the static and dynamic benefit incidence of two programs: sales of subsidized rice targeted on administrative criteria and a set of public employment schemes based on self-selection targeting. Program design appears to have made a substantial difference in both static and dynamic benefit incidence. The employment creation schemes were much more responsive to expenditure shocks than were sales of subsidized rice. For instance, a household from the middle quintile of expenditures in the pre-crisis survey period (May 1997) who suffered the worst quintile shock was four times more likely to have participated in the employment creation program than a similar household with a positive shock but only one and a half times more likely to receive subsidized rice. Using the observed pattern of static and dynamic benefit incidence to compare the two programs and a uniform transfer, we show that if the middle-income households are sufficiently risk averse the additional insurance value of programs with superior dynamic benefit incidence can alter the median voter outcome in favor of more targeted programs.
    • Safety, health and working conditions in the transfer of technology to developing countries

      International Labour Organization (ILO) (International Labour Organization (ILO), 1988-01-01)
      The objectives of this code are: to ensure the appropriate design, proper installation and safe operation and use of new equipment, processes, projects and related products being transferred to developing countries; to provide the means of analysing, from the standpoint of safety and health and conditions of work, existing technologies imported by developing countries and of modifying them to remove the hazards discovered by the analyses; to provide guidance in the setting up of administrative, legal and educational frameworks within which preventive and remedial measures can be implemented.
    • Saint Vincent de Paul and the Mission of the Institute for Business & Professional Ethics: Why Companies Should Care about Poverty

      werhane, patricia; hartman, laura; kelley, scott (The Berkeley Electronic Press SelectedWorks, 2008-01-01)
      In 2006, following St. Vincent of DePaul's commitment to serving the poor, the IBPE aligned its mission with that of DePaul University's: "serving first-generation and underserved student populations and addressing social issues." This initiative was further promoted by DePaul's new strategic plan, Vision Twenty12. As a result, IBPE enhanced its mission to include becoming a catalyst aimed to inspire companies to address the reduction of poverty both globally and locally through for-profit initiatives. There are many dimensions to the achievement of this mission, including teaching, research, and community outreach; and the Institute is just beginning this lifetime set of projects. As an academic institution, however, the Institute realized that, first, it needed to develop strong philosophical arguments justifying and supporting this goal. With that in mind we have developed a series of thought-provoking papers. This article summarizes some of this thinking.
