Recommendations for implementation of labor and social standards for driving personnel in the tourism sector

This working paper describes the recommended minimum requirements for social and labor standards concerning driving personnel in the transport sector. It also offers practical recommendations for their implementation and monitoring. The recommendations are designed in a way that makes them applicable worldwide as far as possible, even though adjustments to the local circumstances might be necessary. It can, for example, have an impact on the social status of the driver and therefore on his/her working conditions whether he/she also acts as tour guide (as it oft en is the case in Kenya) or whether he/she is accompanied by a tour guide as it is common in India. That is why we want to introduce you exemplary to some parti cular challenges at the end of the document.The present paper complements the implementation guide for tour operators, created by the Roundtable Human Rights in Tourism, in a practise oriented way.
