Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety


The Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety has ceased operations as planned on December 31, 2018. All email directed to the Alliance will not be received.

Having completed our five-year term in Bangladesh, we encourage you to review our final annual report, which highlights the achievements we have made over the past five years and shares the stories of the people who have helped drive this process.

We are grateful to our partners, without whom much of the success of the Alliance would not have been possible. We thank the factory owners that have invested substantial resources in improving safety in their factories, the factory workers who have driven safety within their workplace, the government of Bangladesh, industry associations, and our NGO and civil society partners that have helped advance the cause of worker safety in Bangladesh.

Thank you for your unwavering support of our mission to create a safer environment for the millions of workers that make a living in Bangladesh's ready-made garment industry.
