Alliance announces six more factories compliant
The Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety – a platform of north American buyers – has announced that another six RMG factories, which supply products for its signatory brands, have completed Corrective Action Plans (CAPs). As of Tuesday, the number of companies that completed CAPs stood at 68. In addition, the Alliance has dropped seven new factories from its compliant list, bringing the total number of factories suspended to 134. The new six compliant factories include Envoy Design Ltd, Envoy Fashion Ltd, Kenpark Bangladesh (PVT) Ltd, Manta Apparels Ltd, Mohara Asian Apparels Ltd and Youngone (CEPZ) Ltd (Extension Building). “We commend these six factories for prioritising remediation, and in doing so, achieving a substantially higher standard of workplace safety,” Alliance Country Director Jim Moriarty said in a statement. When factories commit to continuous improvement, profound change in Bangladesh’s garment industry shifts from possibility to reality, said the former US envoy in Bangladesh. The Alliance also continued to uphold accountability measures for factories that failed to prioritise remediation. In February, seven new factories were suspended from the Alliance compliant list, bringing the total number of those suspended to 134, added the statement. The issue of safety came under the spotlight following the deadliest factory collapse at Rana Plaza that killed over 1,135 people and injured over 2,500 workers. The incident raised question about the workers safety and safer workplace. In the face of huge pressure from rights group and global trade unions from home and abroad, the global retailers formed Alliance and Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh to improve safety standards in the RMG sector. The Alliance performs independent inspections on structural, electrical and fire safety of all factories from which its members source their products. Based on the findings of inspection, it prescribes CAPs for factories to declare them compliant.
