26 Bangladesh Alliance factories improve safety

The Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety has said 26 affiliated Bangladeshi factories have completed action plans to improve their safety.

The alliance is a legally binding, five-year commitment from US retailers to improve safety in Bangladeshi ready-made garment factories.

Its current retail members include Gap, Macy’s, Nordstrom, Kate Spade and Hudson Bay.

The total number of affiliated factories that have completed their corrective action plans stood at 118 at the end of July. 

Meanwhile the total number of suspended factories was 157, with one factory suspended from the Alliance compliant factory list during the month.

Alliance country director Jim Moriarty said: “We commend these factories for prioritising remediation, and in doing so, demonstrating that every garment worker has a right to a safe workplace.

“This past month’s success reinforces our confidence that Alliance factories will have substantially completed remediation and be well on the way to developing a sustainable culture of safety before the Alliance sunsets in 2018.”
