Cambodian garment units should assess buildings: ILO, GMAC
May '13
The textile and garment factories located in Cambodia are advised to conduct voluntary assessment of their building structures, according to a statement jointly issued by the Better Factories Cambodia (an ILO programme) and the Garment Manufacturers Association in Cambodia (GMAC).
The statement has been issued in the wake of the recent accident at the Top World Garment (Cambodia) Ltd. in the Cambodian capital city Phnom Penh, which injured 23 workers.
The statement said the Cambodian garment factories are responsible to ensure safe environments for workers and protect the country’s garment industry, according to a Cambodia Daily report.
Further, the statement said that it is in the interest of all to take necessary measures to prevent any such accidents happening in the garment industry of Cambodia.
In order to provide safe environments, ILO and GMAC advised all garment factories in the country to participate in voluntary analysis of their building structures.
Separately, ILO and GMAC have also issued a list of construction and engineering firms that are willing to conduct the voluntary structural reviews of garment units.
