3 years on from Rana Plaza, the Bangladesh Accord is saving lives, says IndustriAll

See all tags

Rana Plaza served as a wake-up call to multiple stakeholders – global and local unions, NGOs and brands have worked together to create the Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh. UNI Global Union and IndustriALL are the two global union signatories to the Accord...The legally binding agreement, with over 200 brands, has brought quantifiable improvements in building and fire safety. The Accord has completed almost 3,700 factory inspections and re-inspections and has both identified and remedied thousands of safety issues...Real improvements on the ground are being made – more than 50,000 problems and 75 per cent of electrical issues have been reported as fixed.
