We envision an industry where worker and workplace safety are integral to business.
Nirapon provides resources, tools, and guidance through partnerships that advance factory safety. And we don’t stop at safety. We aim to support human rights, instill confidence in global companies sourcing from Bangladesh, and grow an ethical manufacturing industry.
Create safe work environments in which workers understand their role in upholding a safe workplace and are empowered to raise their voices to identify and address safety issues.
Access targeted education programs and safety resources for factories to reduce risk and build a culture of workplace safety.
Build the capacity of all factories so they can take responsibility for the safety of their people and facilities via well-functioning internal management systems and a sustained adoption of programming.
Collaborate with members on impactful solutions that enhance the safety of their supplier factories, streamline industry efforts on safety, and help all companies source from safer factories.
By building a culture of safety, Bangladesh can position itself for a safer, more productive future which will help the economy thrive.
As the practice of workplace safety management continues to develop in Bangladesh, there’s a growing recognition of the need to create a sustainable culture of safety.
We’re proud to partner with our member companies and participating factories to invest in people, create sustainable safety systems, and refine approaches for continuous improvement as the industry grows and changes.
Nirapon began in 2018 to advance the work of the Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety, an initiative led by global brands and experts in fire, electrical, and building safety that helped hundreds of factories achieve required engineering standards following the deadly Rana Plaza building collapse in 2013. That process brought the factories to the starting line of safety. To maintain these improvements and develop a self-sustaining culture of workplace safety in Bangladesh, members of the Alliance founded Nirapon.
Today, we work with our members to further their roles in promoting safety, systems, and education that helps factories mitigate risk and prevent accidents.
