An ILO programme is helping garment factories in Bangladesh improve safety and minimize the risk of another tragedy like the one that claimed more than 1,100 lives in 2013.
Anwar Hossain, General Manager of the Towel Tex factory says he had never heard of the labour inspectorate before the April 2013 collapse of the Rana Plaza, in the outskirts of Dhaka – one of the worst industrial disasters in recent history.
The tragedy claimed the lives of 1,136 people and injured many more. It also galvanized national and international action to improve safety at garment factories in Bangladesh, which supply many of the world’s clothing brands. The eight-story Rana Plaza housed five such factories.
In the aftermath of the disaster, the immediate priority was to assess the structural, electrical and fire safety of more than 3,600 export-oriented garment factories. Of the total, more than 1,500, including Towel Tex, were inspected with support from the International Labour Organization (ILO).
Following the inspection recommendations, the factory made a number of changes including building a wall between the dyeing shed and the boiler room, widened walkways on the factory floor, installing exit lights and developing an evacuation plan.
Anwar Hossain also recognizes the more active role of the labour inspectorate, which ILO has worked closely with since Rana Plaza to build its capacity and effectiveness.
“I had never even heard of the Department of Inspections for Factories and Establishments. But now we have regular surprise inspections, almost one a quarter,” says Hossain. And that, he says, helps him improve safety in the factory. “We want to be compliant, but without inspections we could never be sure.”
The ILO responded rapidly to the Rana Plaza disaster by working with the Government, employers’ and workers’ organizations to develop a national plan of action to improve fire and building safety. In order to help implement the plan, the ILO, with support from Canada, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, launched the Improving Working Conditions in the Ready-Made Garment Sector Programme in September 2013.
The main goal of the programme is to enhance safety in factories so that the country should never again experience a tragedy like the Rana Plaza collapse.
Training in occupational safety and health (OSH) is an important component of the programme. Shahidul Islam, Deputy Compliance Manager for the Masco Group – a major garment producer – says he learned a lot about chemical safety during the training, something critical considering hundreds of different chemicals are used in the production process and stored in the factory warehouses. “After the training I decided to bring in a number of changes. This was much more than simply rearranging a bunch of bottles on a shelf, and required a lot of work. But we managed to pull it off.” As one of the master trainers trained by the ILO’s programme in collaboration with the Bangladesh Employers Federation, Islam has in turn trained co-workers who have then gone on to train others. “You can talk to any of the workers here. They know about safety and the rules they are supposed to follow,” he says.
The government has praised the programme. “By supporting the Government, employers as well as workers organizations, a strong foundation for workplace safety in the RMG (ready-made garments) sector has been established,” said State Minister of Labour and Employment Muhammad Mujibul Haque.
Chowdhury Ashiqulalam, Member Secretary of the National Coordination Committee for Workers Education (NCCWE) also acknowledged the importance of the programme. “The Rana Plaza disaster brought home the dangers faced by many workers in the Bangladesh RMG sector. While there has been good progress over the past few years to improve factory safety and workers’ awareness of safety issues, much still remains to be done. It is vital that the progress made under this initiative is not allowed to fade away. Good practices and lessons learnt in making RMG workplaces safer need to be replicated in other sectors across the country,” he said.

|Preamble: New Textile Policy 2019 Gujarat|
The Textiles industry is the second most important economic activity in terms of employment
generation after agriculture. lt is also one of the major sources of the country’s export earnings at
15%. lt’s share in industrial output in terms of value is estimated currently at about 7%. The whole
industry is undergoing major restructuring and technology change, and therefore, the government
both at central and state levels are considering measures to support the industry on which
livelihood of several millions of people is dependent.
Gujarat is an industrially robust state; be its geographic leverage owing to its ports or its fertile black
soil producing highest amount of cotton amongst the lndian states. Gujarat as “Manchester of the
East” as it was hailed earlier, has now established itself as the “Textile State of lndia”. Being largest
producer of Man-made Fibre, Synthetic Fabric and Denim, Gujarat contributes about 12% of the
country’s textile exports. Gujarat has the presence of the entire textiles and apparel (T&A) value chain, starting from availability of raw material, yarn production, fabric production, up to apparel and
made-ups manufacturing units. Gujarat contributes 35% to lndia’s cotton production, and in case of man-made fibre production, the state’s share is nearly 50%. Almost 30% of lndia’s mill sector
production of fabric comes from Gujarat. The state has more than 30 sanctioned textile parks, which
is second highest among all the states. Gujarat also has significant number of medium and large
textile processing houses. Moreover, Gujarat contributes about 40% ol the total fabric production
from man-made fibres and about 25 per cent of the country’s technical textiles.
Gujarat Textile Policy 2012 was operational till 3rd September 2018 and has proved to be a very
successful scheme in terms of investment and employment generation. Sectors like Ginning,
Spinning and Technical Textiles saw tremendous growth during Gujarat Textile Policy 2012.
Garmenting, as found to be deserving separate attention with regard to various catalysing factors
present in the state, has already been given a separate incentive scheme under the Gujarat Garment &Apparel Policy 2017 (October 2017).
Looking to the above, the State Government analysed the existence of all segments in the textile
value chain and identified gaps in certain segments. After careful consideration, Government has
decided to come out with a new scheme to strengthen the value chain and extend support to Textile
lndustry in the State of Gujarat.
- The scheme called as ‘Scheme for Assistance to Strengthen Specific Sectors in the Textile Value Chain’, will be operative from September 4, 2018 to December 31, 2023.
- The scheme requires at least 85 per cent of the total manpower of an enterprise and at least 60 per cent of supervisory and managerial staff to be domiciled in Gujarat.
- The segments covered under the scheme include weaving, knitting, dyeing/printing, machine carpeting, technical textile, made-ups, composite units and other activities in the textile value chain such as embroidery, winding, sizing twisting and crimping.
- Garments and apparels have been excluded from the incentives scheme under the new policy as these two sectors have been given a separate incentive scheme under the Gujarat Garment and Apparel Policy, 2017 issued in October, 2017.
- Ginning and spinning have been removed out of the list of over eight manufacturing activities that will be eligible for incentives under various schemes.
- The scheme provides financial assistance through credit-linked interest subsidy of 6 per cent for MSME and 4-6 per cent for large enterprises with an upper ceiling of Rs. 20 crore per annum. A separate scheme for subsidy in power tariff allows up to Rs. 3 per unit for weaving and Rs. 2 per unit for other eligible segments. The eligibility period for these benefits is five years.
- The scheme for assistance in compliance of energy, water and environment conservation covers all existing units in operation for more than three years. The scheme provides 20% assistance on the cost of machinery with a ceiling of Rs. 30 lakh and 50 per cent assistance for audit fees with a limit of Rs. 1 lakh. The benefits can be availed once in two years during the operative period of the scheme.
- For technology upgradation and modernisation in textile value chain, the scheme provides one-time financial assistance of up to 50 per cent of the cost with a limit of Rs. 25 lakh.
- The State government has also extended support for setting up textile parks with financial assistance of up to 25 per cent of capital expenditure on common facilities and infrastructure with a limit of Rs. 15 crore. The park will also get financial assistance to create hostel facilities within park with minimum 100 workers domiciled in Gujarat. The developer of Park will get complete reimbursement of stamp duty paid on purchase of land required for the new Park.
Discard outdated technology and modernize its machinery to be globally competitive; Industry to focus on innovation and value addition for improving global competitiveness; Addresses outreach event on ‘Accomplishments and Way Forward for Textile Sector’ & presents Threads of Excellence Awards
The Vice President of India, Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu has called upon the textile industry to develop a culture of innovation, diversify products and tap newer markets for increasing India’s exports share in the global market. He was addressing the outreach event on ‘Accomplishments and Way Forward for Textile Sector’ and presented Threads of Excellence Awards, here today. The Union Minister for Textiles, Smt. Smriti Irani, the Minister of State for Textiles, Shri Ajay Tamta and other dignitaries were present on the occasion.
The Vice President said that he understands that India’s export performance has been not up to expectations for a variety of reasons. He further said that it cannot be business as usual and the industry has to rise to the occasion and ensure that the share of India’s exports reach double digits from approximately 5 per cent at present. You need to diversify your products and tap newer markets, he added.
Pointing out that India enjoys a unique advantage of having abundant raw materials and presence of manufacturing in all segments of the textile value chain, Shri Naidu said the sector needs to improve supply chains, focus on research, cost optimization and scaling-up to achieve greater competitiveness and a higher share in the production and export of top items traded in global markets.
Observing that this was the ideal time for the industry to discard outdated technology and modernize its machinery to be globally competitive, Shri Naidu said the availability of raw materials, low cost and skilled manpower was an added advantage for the Indian textile industry, which is expected to reach US$ 223 billion by 2021 from. The Vice President said that quality has to be the mainstay for India to sustain exports in the global market in the face of stiff competition from Bangladesh and Vietnam.
Referring to various measures taken by the government like allowing 100 per cent FDI and Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme to accelerate textile industry’s growth, the Vice President advised the industry to focus on innovation and value addition for improving global competitiveness of the Indian textiles and apparels. “Innovation is the key. We have to come up with innovative and exclusive products if we have to expand our footprint in the global arena”, he added. He also stressed the need for promoting waterless dyeing by adopting new technology.
The Vice President presented the Threads of Excellence Awards to various organizations and individuals who have shown their excellence in the textile industry.

Garment manufacturing involves various operations carried out by different operators at different stations. If not executed efficiently, these operations may jeopardize productivity, cause economic loss, and ultimately damage workplace relations: ILO News
In an ever competitive global industry, Myanmar apparel manufacturers must continuously improve production and the quality of their garments in order to survive in this global market.
Garment manufacturing involves various operations carried out by different operators at different stations. All these activities must be performed in a synchronized, planned and timely manner to meet the demands of brands and retailers.
Industry imperatives too often put disproportionate pressure on clothing line production workers who are asked to produce more, better and in less time. Dysfunctional line operations may result in low quality garments or in delayed shipping which may get rejected by the final buyer, causing economic loss and instability for various actors of the supply chain.
Improved productivity and optimized operations benefit not only the factory owners who will see their profitability improved, but may also trigger better terms of employment for workers when sound industrial relations systems, including collective bargaining, are put in place.
The ILO Garment Industry Project (ILO-GIP) has put in place a number of training programmes for Myanmar apparel manufacturers, ranging from sexual and reproductive health to social dialogue, occupational health and safety and productivity.
In cooperation with the Kaizen Institute which supports companies of all sizes in all market segments, between November and December 2018, the ILO-GIP project has selected 10 Myanmar garment factories to conduct a 3-day assessment aimed at improving productivity and efficiency. From these assessments, individualized improvement plans for each selected factory will be developed and implemented by the ILO-GIP and the Kaizen Institute in the following months.
As part of the training, consultants from the Kaizen Institute, in consultation with the factory management, will select a production line in each factory and work closely with factory managers, production engineers, supervisors, line leaders & workers to assess their current modus operandi. Once the gaps in efficiency are identified, an action plan will be put in place and a revised production plan will be piloted in the assessed production line to see the benefits of an improved work flow.
As a result of these assessments, recommendations will be made on how to optimize operations, improve the know-how of all workers and ultimately boost productivity.
The individual proposed action plan will be presented to the Workplace Coordinating Committees (WCCs) of each participating factory where representatives of the management and workers can discuss its implementation and implications on the workers ’terms of employment.
“Increasing productivity and efficiency of workplaces, while involving both managers and workers, is an essential input into social dialogue and collective bargaining. With this initiative, we hope to create a good example of how every one gains from jointly identifying areas of improvements in the workplace” says Catherine Vaillancourt-Laflamme, chief technical advisor for the ILO-GIP.
