One of the leading garment conglomerates of Bangladesh, AJI Group has set up an example for the rest of the garment and textile industry in Bangladesh by maintaining the safety guidelines of World Health Organization (WHO) to protect from COVID-19 infections.
After month-long lockdown, recently the Bangladesh govt. has decided to relax the lockdown for the exporting sectors to kick start the economic activities.
But after the decision of the govt. some factories are not properly maintaining the health guidelines set by the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA). And different communities have raised concerns about the matter.
AJI Group factory in the Industrial Park, Savar has opened from 26 April with only 30% of the worker capacity to maintain health and safety standards.
Ananta Jalil, CIP, Chairman & Managing Director, AJI Group Industrial said to Textile Today, “we have opened our factory with 30% worker capacity to ensure the social distancing guidelines. And in our YouTube channel, we have uploaded all the safety procedures video.”
He added, “So that it creates general awareness among the apparel community in Bangladesh and people around the world can see our ethical practices.”
“We will publish our daily videos as long as the Coronavirus situation do not get normal,” Jalil concluded.
