Ellen Tauscher Comments on Garment Workers Survey


Around half of the garment workers surveyed by a global alliance of retailers say they cannot leave their factory buildings quickly in case of an emergency. Around 30 percent of the respondents think there is a high risk of fire in the buildings where they work, according to the survey by Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety, a platform of 26 US-based clothing retailers and brands. In this Daily Star article, Ellen Tauscher, who serves as independent Chair of the Alliance’s Board of Directors, comments on the survey and how the Alliance is addressing the workers’ safety concerns. 

"We are actively working with the Accord, the government of Bangladesh, the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology, workers' groups, factory owners and other key stakeholders to prevent another factory tragedy and to build a long-term culture of safety," Ms. Tauscher said.
