Manual for capacity building of DIFE inspectors on follow-up of preliminary safety assessments and CAP development

This manual provides guidance for inspectors on how to follow up preliminary safety assessments of RMG factories and the development of Corrective Action Plans (CAPS).

Following the Rana Plaza collapse all export-oriented RMG factories in Bangladesh were inspected for structural, fire and electrical safety. Following on from these inspections each factory needed to develop a Corrective Action Plan (CAP) setting out how it would correct any faults identified in the CAPS. This manual provides detailed information on the CAP process, actions to remediate faults as well as checklists for inspectors covering structural, fire and electircal areas. The manual was developed by the ILO with the support of Canada, the Netherlands, United Kingdom and US Department of Labor.
