77pc RMG factories meet Accord requirements

STAFF REPORTER

The overall remediation progress rate of safety issues identified in initial inspections reported or verified as fixed has reached 77 per cent, says Accord in its May issue.

Remediation is close to completion at more than 400 Accord factories which have completed more than 90 per cent of the remediation.
The Accord monitors completion of remediation at more than 1600 factories with more than 100 engineers on staff who conduct up to 500 follow-up inspections each month. Each factory covered by the Accord is inspected approximately once every three to four months.
The Accord secretariat further conducts targeted remediation review meetings with individual signatory companies to identify high priority factories where remediation must be accelerated. 
At 71 suppliers, Accord signatory companies were required to terminate business with this supplier’s factories for continuing to inadequately participate in the Accord program. The Accord Safety Committee and Safety Training Program has commenced at 480 Accord factories employing more than 1 million workers. At these factories, Accord has held 317 “All Employee Sessions” to present the Safety Committee to inform workers how to identify and address safety hazards and how to safely evacuate the factory in case of a fire. 
The Accord Training Team has conducted 827 Safety Committee Training Sessions at factories where the program has commenced. The full 7 session training curriculum has been completed at 49 factories.
