Database of workers shall be ready by August-end: BGMEA

Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) is hopeful that the work of preparation of biometric database of workers of all its member factories would be completed in time.
 
Seeking speedy realization of its goal, the association last month set a deadline of August 30 for completion of the job of preparing a biometric database of all workers. 
 
The association also said that failure to complete the job within stipulated time would result in discontinuation of all services to that factory by BGMEA, Nasiruddin Ahmed Chowdhury, 1st Vice-President of BGMEA told BSS, the national news agency of Bangladesh.
 
3,600 of the 5,500 factories registered with BGMEA, the apex trade body of garment producers in Bangladesh, are operational at present. 
 
The database would contain details of all the workers at the 3,600 garment factories operational in Ashulia, Chittagong, Dhaka and Narayanganj. Upon registration, the worker would be given a unique ID, acceptable at all BGMEA factories, Mr. Chowdhury said.
 
Last month, talking about the need for such a database, BGMEA President M Atiqul Islam said, “There is no exact data at present of the number of skilled, semi-skilled and unskilled workers employed in the industry”. 
 
Thus, it has become necessary to prepare the database, in the wider interest of the nation, he said.
 
Earlier, Minister for Labour and Employment, Rajiuddin Ahmed Raju also praised the initiative saying that it would help in prompt identification of missing workers.
 
Voicing the Government’s helplessness at the time of Tazreen fire and Rana Plaza collapse incidences, he said the Government then failed to derive the exact number of missing workers due to lack of a central database.
 
The central database would allow them to derive all information at just one click, he added.
