More garment factories to be inspected

The group is also preparing a risk assessment parameter which would be provided to the International Labour Organisation later this month for making a common check list for factory inspection.
Under the accord, two funds will be formed with all the money coming from the retailers.
Each brand and retailer will finance its respective supplier for improvement, repairing and renovation of the factories and training for the workers, Azim said.
Eighty-seven brands and retailers, mostly European, have so far signed the accord, according to IndustriALL.
The accord aims to make the Bangladeshi garment industry safe and sustainable through comprehensive inspections, repairs of factories, training and involvement of workers.
It will cover all factories working for the signatories, opening them all up for safety inspections and further measures depending on the factory's significance to the brand.
Azim also talked about the minimum wage for garment workers.
“We will accept whatever the Minimum Wage Board recommends.”
