The programme is implemented by the ILO and funded by Canada, the Netherlands and the UK. Since its launch, the programme has supported government efforts to inspect over 1,500 readymade garment (RMG) factories for structural, fire and electrical safety. The capacity of the department of inspections for factories and establishments has been greatly enhanced while steps have also been made to boost safety and health in the industry. Rana Plaza survivors have been supported while the Better Work programme has been launched in Bangladesh which currently works to enhance compliance and productivity in over 100 RMG factories.
For the second phase of the project, areas under consideration include support for the establishment of a Remediation Coordination Cell to oversee remediation of RMG factories, ILO said in a statement. Work to strengthen regulatory capacity as well as build the occupational safety and health capabilities of employers’ and workers’ organisations is also likely to continue. (RKS)
