'Local expertise must for industrial safety in B'desh'
Jan '16
With the issue of Bangladesh's industrial safety under the global scanner for almost three years now, experts have said that the development of expertise and technical know-how are important for ensuring safety in the readymade garment sector in the country.

They were speaking at a seminar in Dhaka on Hazard and Risk Aseeement of Garment Industries in Bangladesh. The seminar was organised by the Department of Chemical Engineering of the Institute of Engineers.

Speakers also emphasised on partnership and collaboration between government, industry owners and universities to develop industrial safety standards.

Dr. M Sam Mannan, Professor of Chemical Engineering Department of Texas A&M University presented the keynote paper titled “The journey to safety excellence in the garment industry in Bangladesh: Past, Present and Future.”

Dr. Mannan urged the government, garment factory owners and other stakeholders to develop new regulation for compliance beside the existing law and regulations.

He suggested for holding a 'Safety Summit' in the country to address successful safety measures. It would be an annual summit with an aim to come up with practical solutions and achievable goals in the safety concerns.

While Mannan stressed that the EU and North American retailers' groups can resolve the short-term safety issues in the RMG sector, local expertise is important for achieving a long-term goal, Industries minister Amir Hossain Amu said that there were local and international conspiracies in the readymade garment sector in Bangladesh.
