Another Disaster at a Bangladesh Factory

It's been 3 years since the deadly collapse of the garment factory at Rana Plaza, Dhaka  in Bangladesh and while safety inspections at clothing and textile factories have increased since then, there are still obviously major flaws in the system. The clothing industry in Bangladesh accounts for 80% of all it's exports, and it is second only to China in ready-made clothing exports. Bangladesh's reputation in it's treatment of workers is therefore, vital to it's economy. The spotlight must me kept on Bangladesh to ensure that working conditions and human rights are not being ignored.

The following link is to a Business Insider article dated January 2016 about a fire at the Tampaco packaging factory that killed 39 people, happened after it's licence was renewed twice without physical inspections by safety officers.
