Building a culture of Occupational Safety and Health in the Ready Made Garment sector: analysis of the project model and main achievements

The paper analyses the achievements of the ILO project “Building a Culture of Occupational Safety and Health in the RMG sector” which is part of the broader “Improving Working Conditions in the Ready- Made-Garment Sector in Bangladesh” programme, launched in October 2013 following the terrible accident at the Rana Plaza. The project, aiming at improving awareness on the Safety and Health risks at workplaces in Ready Made Garment Factories, involved some 600 enterprises, roughly employing 1.5 million workers. The three-dimensional approach designed in the project, whereby local capacity is built in employers’ organizations, whose trainers are then deployed to companies to run training for factories’ mid-level managers, who in turn give awareness-raising sessions to workers is studied to better understand its weaknesses and strengths for eventual replication in other context and countries.
