Factory remediation continues to advance at steady pace
DHAKA, Bangladesh - The Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety announced today that during the month of June, ten additional Alliance-affiliated factories completed all material components outlined in their Corrective Action Plans (CAPs), bringing the total number of factories to have completed their CAPs to 92.
The factories include Bengal Windsor Thermoplastics Ltd., JMS Garments Ltd., Karnaphuli Sportswear Ind. Ltd., Lalmai Sportswear Ind. Ltd., Mars Sportswear Ltd., Mehnaz Styles and Craft Ltd., Titas Sportswear Ind. Ltd., Toy Woods (BD) Co Ltd., Union Accessories Ltd., and Youngone Sports Shoes Inds. Ltd.
“We commend each of these factories for making workplace safety a top priority,” said Alliance Country Director Jim Moriarty. “Working together, we can make safer garment factories the rule, not the exception, in Bangladesh.”
The Alliance also continued to enforce accountability measures for factories that failed to make adequate remediation progress. In June, two factories were suspended from the Alliance compliant factory list, bringing the total number of suspended factories to 156.
The complete list of factories that have achieved substantial completion of their CAPs, as well as those that have been suspended, can be found on the Alliance website.
