Twenty nine factories completed all material components outlined in their corrective action plans (CAPs) during September, bringing the total such units to 195, The Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety recently announced. During the July-September quarter, there were more than four times as many CAP completions as there were in the first and second quarters.
September was also the first month this year in which no factories was suspended for failure to make remediation progress, the Alliance, a platform of North American retailers that sets timeframes and accountability for safety inspections and training and workers’ empowerment programmes in Bangladesh, said in a press release.
“We commend each and every one of these factories for prioritizing remediation and fulfilling their commitment to providing safer workplaces for their employees,” said Alliance country director Jim Moriarty.
