Efforts have been undertaken and supported by ILO to reinforce the capacity of workers, supervisors and managers in the Ready-Made-Garment (RMG) sector to improve the safety of their workplaces in RMG companies in Bangladesh. Through training and education and the support of broad awareness campaigns and materials, workers and employers have benefited from improved safety practices. The International Training Centre of the ILO and ILO Dhaka Office in strong partnership with Bangladesh Employers Federation (BEF), Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers Export Association (BGMEA), Bangladesh Knitwear Manufacturers Export Association (BKMEA) made an agreement to reach out to 585 companies providing training material and support for the implementation of basic training events and informative sessions for mid-level managers and workers.
