Labour Inspectors of the Department of Inspection of Factories and Establishments (DIFE) were awarded certificates at an event to mark the successful completion of three week long induction training on inspection and occupational Safety and health.
 
The Improving Working Conditions in the Ready Made Garment (RMG) Programme of the International Labour Organization (ILO) in collaboration with the International Training Centre (ITC) of ILO has been carrying out the Labour Inspection training for the current and newly recruited labour inspectors of the DIFE. 
 
A total of 125 labour Inspectors (114 male and 11 female inspectors) were trained in three training sessions starting from 8 June 2014. The training includes a range of different topics such as introduction on labour inspection and occupational safety and health (OSH), labour inspection strategies, OSH management, carrying out labour inspection visit, accident investigation etc. The training includes lectures, role plays and factory visits, facilitated by several trainers from ITC Turin, Italy.
 
“The Government of Bangladesh highly appreciates the initiative of providing training to the Labour Inspectors of the Department of Inspection of Factories and Establishments. This will leave a lasting impact in enhancing capacity of the inspectors and inspection system in Bangladesh,” said Mr Mikail Shipar, Secretary, Ministry of Labour and Employment who handed over the certificates to the newly trained inspectors. 
 
The Improving Working Conditions in the RMG Programme aims to support the Government of Bangladesh to significantly improve the capacity of its inspection system through gradual improvement of the legislative and policy framework, equipping and training of the current and newly recruited inspectors, support to improving the organizational structure and the business processes of the Department of Inspection of Factories and Establishments (DIFE).
 
Reiterating ILO’s commitment in working for better labour inspection system, Mr Tuomo Poutiainen, Programme Manager, RMG Programme of ILO said, “Training of the Labour Inspectors is instrumental in ensuring safety and rights of the workers. Training alone cannot ensure betterment of conditions unless legislative and policy changes are also made. ILO is committed to assist the Government of Bangladesh.  In this process of change.”
 
The Government of Bangladesh (GoB) and the ILO is implementing a three-and-a-half year long initiative  aimed at improving working conditions in the ready-made garment (RMG) industry in Bangladesh. The programme is funded by Canada, Kingdom of the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.
