How Amader Kotha is Helping One Factory Resolve Safety Issues

The Alliance launched a 3rd party worker Helpline – called Amader Kotha (“Our Voice”) – in July 2014. It has been rolled out to 371 factories and will be introduced in the remaining Alliance factories as part of our upcoming fire safety refresher training (to be launched this fall). Since December 2014, we have received 25,256 total calls, of which 2,218 were related to substantive issues (while most of the other calls were informational or test calls made during factory trainings). The top five issues related to safety for both urgent and non-urgent calls are listed in the table below. safety 2
