10 killed in Bangladesh garment factory fire

At least 10 garment workers including some of the factory’s officials were killed and many injured by a devastating fire at a garment factory in Sreepur upazila, Gazipur on the outskirts of Dhaka, on Tuesday.

The fire originated in the dyeing section of Aswad Composite Mills owned by the Palmal Group.

The cause of the blaze is yet to be ascertained. However, eyewitnesses said, the flame spread to a nearby chemical store on the first floor and in no time engulfed the two floors.

Firemen recovered seven bodies from the ground floor and two from the second floor of the two-storey factory. Police said most of the bodies were charred beyond recognition.

At least 170 workers were on duty on the two floors when the fire broke out.

IRM publishes guidance on Risk Culture

IRM publishes guidance on Risk Culture | Health+Safety Campaign | Scoop.it

The root cause of corporate meltdown is increasingly identified as problems with risk culture. We have more regulations, standards, codes and governance than ever before, but, while important, these are clearly not sufficient to ensure that the actual behaviour of individuals and teams is fully aligned with the organisation’s desired approach to risk.

An international group of IRM members has been leading a 9 month project to produce:

• A short guidance document aimed at boards who want to understand the issues surrounding risk culture within their organisation, and
• A detailed resource document for risk practitioners setting out the background research and some practical models, tools and techniques that can usefully be applied
