The Alliance was formed after the Rana Plaza building collapse to strengthen workplace safety in the garment sector. The factory inspection agency completed its preliminary detailed engineering assessment of nearly 700 factories in September 2014.
Engineers of the agency are now inspecting the progress of remediation of the corrective action plans laid out by them during the preliminary inspection.
As of July 11, 28 member factories have completed their Corrective Action Plans, which is 17 per cent higher than the last updates by the agency.
In all factories, more than one-third of the issues most critical to life safety have already been addressed two years ahead of the deadline.
The Alliance members so far suspended business relations with 83 factories for their failure to make adequate remediation progress.
“Make no mistake -- our work is achieving the big-picture goal of driving consolidation of the RMG industry in Bangladesh into safer factories,” he said.
