Sinha Dyeing & Finishing Ltd. Babylon Casualwear Ltd. successfully remediate all critical safety issues
DHAKA, Bangladesh– The Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety announced today that Sinha Dyeing & Finishing Ltd. and Babylon Casualwear Ltd., two Alliance member factories in Dhaka, have successfully completed their Corrective Action Plans. With more than two years yet to go in the Alliance’s 5-year safety initiative, Sinha and Babylon become the 27th and 28th factories, respectively, to achieve completion status by remediating all critical safety issues identified during their Alliance inspections.
In keeping with its mission to improve the safety of Bangladesh’s ready-made garment industry, all factories from which Alliance members source are inspected by independent assessment firms to identify safety concerns. During this process, factory owners are provided with a Corrective Action Plan (CAP) to systematically and sustainably improve conditions for their workers. Following the development of the CAP, remediation is undertaken to address structural integrity, electrical and fire safety issues. Factories undertake remediation until non-compliant issues outlined in the CAP are resolved.
“Every CAP completion is one step forward in the Alliance’s mission to improve workplace safety,” said Country Director Jim Moriarty. “From inspection to remediation, this process requires commitment and effort on the part of factory owners. We congratulate Sinha Dyeing & Finishing Ltd. and Babylon Casualwear Ltd. for achieving this important goal.”
