The primary objective is to ensure the factories used to produce products for VF in Bangladesh are safe for all of the workers employed. From broken and free electrical wiring association, particularly the wiring of dry iron utilized for CREASING PURPOSE. It is discovered that more often than not the iron wiring are appropriately settled while being continually utilized. The free wiring association gets in contact with negative and positive wires of iron, which gives start and odds of flame and electrical stun is high. …
Lint Built UPS
Build up constructed ups on overhead wiring channels.
Build up constructed ups inside electrical control boards.
Most normal build up constructed ups are inside sewing machine electrical engine packaging. Generally because of variance in current supply or because of shortcircuits smoke ascends from these engine packaging, which laborers on observing this gets terrified.
Utilization of inflammable synthetic substances for spot expelling/Cleaning reason:
The most widely recognized concoction utilized for spot expelling is THINNER (Sprite containing
100% Alcohol) the gear utilized for showering has an electrical attractive engine.
Normally, because of steady use, these types of gear are anything but difficult to get overheated and
odds of start are high. Then again odds of flame are likewise high.
We as a whole think about flame in CHOWDHURY KNIT. The fundamental driver of flame was because of this
concoction utilized for spot expelling.
synthetic concoctions in washing plant and coloring plant are put away unsystematically and void
synthetic concoctions drums/compartments are normally held under open sky. Exceptionally in the event that corrosive drums are held under open sky and on the off chance that it downpours , exhaust may ascend from these holders and may cause fire and furthermore that these might be dangerous to wellbeing and condition.
Specialists absence of flame security learning and fire penetrates because of which if there should be an occurrence of genuine fire
or on the other hand because of any false caution they get apprehensive and froze.
Plants holding the ways out safely guarded.
We can recognize the previously mentioned focuses as the principle and real reason for flame and losses in Bangladeshi processing plants. When we have distinguished the purposes behind flame and losses, we ought to do the accompanying, as we have confidence in “PREVENTATION IS BETTER THAN CURE” in view of these , all industrial facilities should:
Evacuate and supplant every single flawed wiring.
At any rate check and keep record of wiring support fortnightly.
Extraordinary checks to be directed on Iron, combining machine, free attachments, switches, circuit breakers on regular schedule and wherever change required ought to quickly be supplanted.
Clean build up assembled ups once per week.
Check and clean engine packaging once every week.
Correct all free electrical associations.
Choose affirmed and authorized circuit tester to complete all the previously mentioned works.
Give preparing to specialists and dishearten them on utilizing of any broken types of gear, they ought to be prepared to ready to perceive any kind of variation from the norm in the types of gear they are taking care of.
Store synthetics according to guidelines put on their holders.
Try not to dump any void synthetic holders under open sky.
In the wake of perceiving the reasons and reasons for flame in Bangladesh, we can classified the
Manufacturing plants in Bangladesh into sort dependent on their areas:
Freestanding Factory and its requirement for fire preventions.
A freestanding factory is factory which may be a single storied shed type building or it may
be a multi storied building which is being used by one single factory and which is not shared
by any other tenants. We can chalk out procedure and methods for free standing factories
on how to tackle fire situations and how to train workers on these issues as follows;
Factory should conduct unannounced fire drills at least once a month.
factory should let the workers know about the accidents occurred in other factories and the reason of casualties, and educated them how to tackle in situations that had occurred in that factory and also educated and motivate workers to participate in Fire drills seriously.
At least 40% of workers should be trained on how to use fire extinguishers, but would be suggestible that as part of factories best policy 100% of workers should be trained on use of fire extinguishers.
Factory to form “Disaster Management and Prevention Committee” with the following teams who should be provided with uniforms:
Fire Fighting team
Rescue team for Child care center
Special Security team
The above team members should be properly trained and they should have their own written
DISASTER MANAGEMENT AND PREVENTION PROCEDURE, these teams should sit for
meeting at least once a month.
Educate all workers the meaning and importance of exit/aisles/extinguishers and electrical panels markings
Factory should install battery operated fire alarm system and this should be heard all at a time from all floors of the building no matter where activated from.
In case of gong bell, workers should be trained that whenever one hears a gong bell ring should immediately start ringing the other gong bell in the floor by person near to the bell and workers to evacuated building as per procedure.
Factory to implement a system that electrician should check all electrical switches, irons, fusing machines etc., and sign out in a log book before shutting down the main switches on closing down of the factories.
All workers should know how to shut down main switches and how to activate fire alarm switches.
Workers should be able to understand evacuation floor plan and should know the nearest exit to be used during evacuation.
Tenants Factory and its requirement for fire preventions.
Inhabitant manufacturing plant is a processing plant where the building is shared by different inhabitants or occupants and
the fundamental passageway and ways out are altogether utilized usually. For Tenant kind processing plant every one of the focuses
referenced for Freestanding processing plant is to be tracked with the accompanying focuses:
Should frame “Occupant DISASTER MANAGEMENT AND PREVENTION
Board of trustees”
Should lead Fire penetrates and preparing together with different inhabitants .
Guarantee that all staircases and ways out are kept clear unsurpassed.
Have normal or public putting out fires hardware put at all stairwells, and crisis lights too.
The fire caution alarm/signal/ringer ought to be gotten notification from all floors (all inhabitants)
The occupant debacle the board and anticipation advisory group ought to sit for a gathering each month and should visit the entire working to discover resistance issues and they should take appropriate measure to amend the rebelliousness issues quickly.
Lead mindfulness meeting on these resistance issues.
Blurbs/photos on security issues, for example, which means of different markings (exits/dousers/passageways and so forth) ought to be posted set up where by and large the consideration of laborers can be drawn.
Direct preparing ablaze wellbeing and medical problems.
direct reported and unannounced fire drills, board of trustees ought to encourage approaches to enhance if bore is nit agreeable.
co-work with BGMEA and different purchasers to actualize the fire security, fire bore and preparing for all occupants inside a similar building.
