Who we are
The Ready-Made Garments (RMG) Sustainability Council (RSC) is an unprecedented initiative to carry forward the significant accomplishments made in workplace safety in Bangladesh.
The RSC conducts structural, electrical, fire and boiler safety inspections, supports and monitors remediation, conducts safety training and operates an independent safety & health complaints mechanism available to workers in RMG factories in Bangladesh.
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.
