    The recent deaths in Bangladesh has focused attention once again at safety in the work place. What is so troubling is that nothing seems to change...even after events like this occur. The demand by large multinational corporations for cheap goods will continue. The slave like wages is part of the greed that seems to engulf not only the companies but the politicians and the building owners. This whole thing is tragic.

    Recently the government of Barbados replaced its Factories act with this piece of legislation.

    Occupational Health And Safety - Business Barbados

    Despite the ILO regulations there will be people who see loopholes and will try to evade the rules which should be there to protect those who work.

    With the difficult economic circumstances many face they are those who will be afraid to highlight dangers in the work place just to keep their jobs.

    Companies and the government agencies should begin to see this as serious issue that needs urgent attention.
