Safety lacking after Bangladesh factory disaster: US

Bangladeshi volunteers and rescue workers are pictured at the scene after the Rana Plaza complex collapsed in Savar, on the outskirts of Dhaka, on April 25, 2013A year after the collapse of the Rana Plaza garment factory building left more than 1,100 dead, Washington says it remains concerned about worker safety and rights in Bangladesh. The poorly built nine-story Rana Plaza outside Dhaka was a warren of shops producing garments for export, including for major international brands like Italy’s Benetton, Britain’s Primark and Spain’s Mango. Its collapse came six months after a fire at the Tazreen garment factory killed 111, further highlighting the deep safety issues in the country’s $20 billion clothing industry. “We still have concerns however about labor rights and workplace safety in Bangladesh and there’s still a lot of work to be done, particularly on the legal side of things.”
