IAF supports Bangla accord & alliance on worker safety
25
Apr '14
It’s one year since the Rana Plaza building collapse, one of the world’s biggest and most tragic Industrial accidents in modern history. The accident caused worldwide discussion on how to improve the worker safety and fire and building safety.
 
The IAF has taken steps to support the main action based programs, the Accord on Fire and Building safety and the Alliance on Worker Safety. IAF's support is based on its main characteristics: its global spread and its representation of SME's.
 
IAF represents apparel industry associations from over 60 countries, who in turn represent the total spread of the apparel industry, from large to small enterprises and from buyers to manufacturers. Therefore, the IAF serves as an important hub for the exchange of information between the Accord and IAF’s members. 
 
Based on its own global responsibility action plan, the IAF encourages its members to support collective, action based programs currently running in Bangladesh, aimed at improving worker safety.
 
Information about the implementation of the Accord is important for the IAF and its members because of the growing impact of the Accord on companies involved in sourcing from Bangladesh. 
 
Both organisations are committed to open and frequent exchange of information. This provides the Accord with a valuable connection to global apparel associations and their members, and ensures IAF has up to date and easy access to information about the Accord relevant to its members. The IAF is in the process of setting up a similar exchange of information with the Alliance, in accordance with its global mission.
