DHAKA – In the wake of a fire in the Bangladeshi capital which killed more than 70 people, campaign groups and garment worker rights organisations have been quick to praise the Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh for helping minimise such disasters since beginning operations in 2013. 

While this fire was not at a garment production facility, it has highlighted what some people believe to be sub-standard building safety previsions in the nation – and how increased regulation within apparel manufacturing has been a success. 

Avoiding a hasty hand-over of responsibilities for safeguarding garment factories is now high on the list of priorities for campaign groups which have been long-time supporters of the Accord.
