After Rana Plaza: How has safety improved for garment workers?24 April 2023
The collapse of the Rana Plaza building in the outskirts of Dhaka on 24 April 2013 resulted in the deaths of over 1,100 people – mostly garment workers – and shone a global spotlight on workplace safety and labour rights in the Bangladesh garment industry.
On the tenth anniversary of the disaster, ILO’s Country Director for Bangladesh Tuomo Poutiainen, shares his views on how safety in the sector has improved, the challenges that remain and what other garment-producing countries can learn from the Bangladesh experience.
