Who we are
The RMG Sustainability Council (RSC) is an unprecedented private national tripartite initiative to carry forward the significant accomplishments made in workplace safety in Bangladesh. The RSC was set up by three incorporating members representing each of the three constituents from Industry, Global Fashion Brands and Global and Local Trade Unions.
The RSC conducts structural, electrical, fire & life safety and boiler safety inspections, supports and monitors remediation, conducts safety training, and operates an independent occupational safety & health complaints mechanism available to workers in covered RMG factories.
The company’s vision is to deliver world-class sustainable workplace safety programmes and to make the RMG Industry a safe and better place to work.
RSC's response to COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic has left an unprecedented impact on the RMG Sector both globally and domestically. In line with the WHO guidelines, a COVID-19 checklist has been prepared and provided to the RSC covered factories.
All covered factories are required to maintain safety measures as per the COVID-19 checklist. From 6 September 2020, the RSC resumed its structural, electrical and fire safety inspections at the covered factories amid COVID-19 pandemic. All RSC engineers/employees have been provided with COVID-19 health and safety guidelines and PPE (personal protective equipment) to ensure their safety and wellbeing during factory inspections.
