As many as 364 factories affiliated with the Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety (Alliance) have completed all material components outlined in their Corrective Action Plans (CAP). The Alliance provides global RMG firms and retailers opportunity to come together and put forward concrete solutions to issues that impact apparel and retail firms worldwide.

“We commend the commitment these factories have made to prioritize safety for their workers, and we thank them for setting a standard for others to follow,” said Alliance executive director Amb. Jim Moriarty.

Across all Alliance factories, 90 per cent of all required factory remediation has been completed, laying the groundwork for the Alliance’s planned transition to a Safety Monitoring Organization (SMO) that will include Bangladesh leadership and oversee safety inspection and monitoring, worker training and the 24-7 Amader Kotha helpline beginning in 2019.

“The work of the Alliance and its partners to overhaul factory safety has made a significant difference within the RMG industry in Bangladesh,” said Kathleen Almand, vice president of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). “My colleagues at NFPA and I are optimistic about the future, and we look forward to seeing how these gains will be built upon as the Alliance transitions its work.”(RR)
