Improving fire and general building safety in Bangladesh - Final Evaluation

Good Practice Description

The project, collaborating with RMGP, has demonstrated good practice in developing a system for carrying out preliminary assessments and subsequent steps. The system includes categorisation into red, yellow, amber and green factories based on structural safety, the undertaking of the Detailed Engineering Assessment, the development of Corrective Action Plans and the follow up and monitoring of remediation work. This is the collective result of the work of the ILO and other key stakeholders such as Accord, Alliance, MOLE, DIFE, FSCD, BGMEA, BKMEA and BUET. The harmonised standards and tools developed including the manuals and checklists are applicable in other industries not only in Bangladesh but could even be replicated in similar circumstances in other regional countries.
