Alliance to form joint entity for safety in factories

Apr '18
On the 5th anniversary of the Rana Plaza Collapse, The Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety (Alliance) has announced the formation of a joint entity to oversee inspections, monitoring, worker training and helpline services over the long term. The brands, factory owners and the government have taken up the responsibility for ensuring worker safety.

"With Alliance factory remediation nearing completion, our factories have reached the starting line for safety, not the finish line. The progress achieved in fortifying worker safety in the last five years has been unprecedented and serves as a model for other countries to follow," Alliance press release stated.

Remembering the victims of the Rana Plaza Collapse, Alliance reaffirms its commitment to continuing an uncompromising focus on safety. "Today, millions of men and women who make a living in Bangladesh’s garment industry work in factories that meet international safety standards.  They have been trained to protect themselves in case of an emergency. And they have tools to bring immediate attention to safety concerns, including a confidential, 24 hour helpline," the release said. (RR)
