PVH Corp. announced that it has agreed in principle to an Accord on Fire and Building Safety with the same group of non-governmental organizations consisting of Clean Clothes Campaign, Worker Rights Consortium, The International Labor Rights Forum, and Maquila Solidarity Network, as well as a group of eight international and Bangladeshi trade unions, that established the landmark 2012 Joint Memorandum of Understanding on Fire and Building Safety.

The agreement expands to five years (from two) a fire and building safety program to be led by a multi-stakeholder task force for the purposes of establishing an in-factory training program; facilitating the creation of factory health and safety committees; reviewing existing building regulations and enforcement; developing a worker complaint process and mechanism for workers to report health and safety risks; and advising a lead Safety Inspector.

The Safety Inspector will design and implement a fire safety inspection program based on internationally recognized workplace safety standards. The Safety Inspector will also direct and oversee the various other elements of the program.

The program will be financed by the participating companies. PVH will commit up to $2.5 million to underwrite the program. PVH has invited industry partners to join it, German retailer Tchibo (who joined the original MOU in the fall) and H&M, which announced that it will join the Accord, to join it in this effort.

PVH Corp., one of the world’s largest apparel companies, owns and markets the iconic Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger brands worldwide. It is the world’s largest shirt and neckwear company and markets a variety of goods under its own brands, Van Heusen, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, IZOD, ARROW, Warner’s, Olga, Bass and G.H. Bass & Co., and its licensed brands, including Speedo, Geoffrey Beene, Kenneth Cole New York, Kenneth Cole Reaction, MICHAEL Michael Kors, Sean John, Chaps, Donald J. Trump Signature Collection, JOE Joseph Abboud, DKNY, Ike Behar and John Varvatos.
