Levi Strauss taps blockchain tech for worker welfare project

Levi Strauss taps blockchain tech for worker welfare project

Levi Strauss & Co, Harvard University’s public health graduate school and US think-tank New America have teamed up to develop a blockhain-based system designed to augment outside auditors of factory health and safety with self-reporting by workers, Reuters reports.

Three factories in Mexico producing goods for Levi Strauss and employing 5,000 workers will be the first to use this in 2019. Consensys will provide the project’s blockchain solution, with the project being funded through a grant from the US State Department.
