ILO to scrutinise Bangladesh factory safety

After a series of deadly fires, the International Labour Organisation is putting safety measures under greater scrutiny.

    A series of disasters in Bangladesh's garment industry has led to owners, retail brands and the government promising to make changes, but so far, it has been more talk than action.

    Now, the international Labour Organisation is launching a programme that will put factories' safety measures under greater scrutiny.
