Implimentation of a Pilot of an Employment Injury Scheme (EIS) in Bangladesh

The ILO is advocating for a Pilot EIS in Bangladesh in the ready-made garments sector, which will protect the employers from reputational risk and catatrophic loss arising from industrial accidents, and provide a periodic scheme for those injured in the workplace, as well as the dependents of deceased workers.

Factory fire can causes death, injury, damage to the production equipment, delay in product delivery and harm the reputation.
