Bangladesh govt launches safety campaign for RMG workers

Apr '17
In a bid to create awareness on the basic Occupational Safety and Health (OSH), the Bangladesh government has launched a safety radio-based campaign titled 'Safe Workplaces, Go ahead Bangladesh for RMG workers. The campaign will broadcast a series of 19 episodes on Dhaka FM 90.4 on Thursday and Friday. Each episode will highlight OSH related problem.

The Ministry of Labour and Employment and the Department of Inspections for Factories and Establishments in collaboration with the International Labour Organization funded by Canada, Netherlands and UK will implement the campaign, according to Bangladesh media.

"Efforts to improve workplace safety remain the highest priority for Bangladesh government. The campaign will reach out to RMG workers to help them better understand many safety areas," said senior labour and employment secretary Mikail Shipar.

A large number of RMG workers will benefit from the campaign, said ILO country director for Bangladesh Srinivas Reddy. He added that it is vital that the safety culture will go beyond the RMG sector.

The campaign will also include a series of safety-related radio commercials which will focus on various issues such as what to do in case of fire, maternity protection and the role of safety committees which comprise representatives of the management and workers. (RR)
