The accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh said Wednesday it has completed more than 800 factory inspections for fire, electrical and structural safety, as it disclosed inspection reports and corrective action plans on 50 of those facilities.
In May 2013, global apparel brands and retailers, along with two unions, IndustriALL and UNI, and several human and labor rights organizations, signed an agreement to make factories safe in Bangladesh in the wake of a fire and building collapse in the country that resulted in more than 1,200 workers losing their lives. More than 180 brands and retailers are now part of the accord.
