The Factories Act 1965 is an Act of the Parliament of Bangladesh. At the time of its passage, the Act consolidated much legislation on workplace health, safety and welfare in Pakistan. Though as of 2008[update] some of it remains in force, it has largely been superseded by the Health and Safety at Work Act and regulations made under it.
However, the Act continues to have a legal importance as cases of chronic workplace exposure to hazards such as industrial noise, as in the Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire deafness litigation or carcinogens often extend back in time beyond the current legislation. Intervals for rest or meals are followed by most of the factories; interval time is from 30-45mins.
Workers in both industries face numerous occupational risks and accidents. The employment of child workers in both the garments and construction industries is governed by oral contract. The nature of work given to these child workers is the same as those given to adult workers.
The government of Bangladesh must ratify ILO Convention No. 138 on the minimum age for employment. The government of Bangladesh must carry out regular factory inspections that apply to all the economic actors in the country, including in small-scale activities, with particular priority in order to eliminate child labor. The government of Bangladesh must take effective measures to end servitude in domestic service.
Objective of the Study
There were some purposes for which I am given this term paper. They are as follows:
➢ To let us know about the Factories Act, 1965.
➢ To get contemporary knowledge on working condition of factories. ➢ To know how to analyze needs & reduce performance gap. ➢ To know how to evaluate the limitation and implementation of the Act in the factory of Bangladesh. ➢ To know how to impose the law in the factory.
➢ Developing team work quality among us by working in a group. ➢ Developing report writing and presentation skills.
Limitations of the Report
Since our study is based on both primary and secondary data, there is a possibility of getting fake information. If the surveyed personnel provide us with any fabricated information about their opinion of their organization, then the report findings may be erroneous. Above all, this study is weak in some points. The notable ones are as under:
✓ The survey was conducted in a very short time so we were not able to collect more information.
✓ This survey made on crisis situation of Bangladesh, so it was difficult to collect more samples.
✓ Only the big and the reputed Garments Company consider here as sample.
✓ The questionnaire contains some questions that, if answered properly, might damage the company’s image. In this type of questions, the respondents might provide socially acceptable answers. This risk was unavoidable.
✓ Another limitation of this study is the person’s private information were not disclosing some, data and information for obvious reasons, which could be very much useful.
✓ Lack of experience in this field.
✓ Lack of proper authority to conduct the interview program.
At first, we went to different garments company and collect information from the personnel. In preparing this report, we approached according to the following procedure:
For Bangladesh, the readymade garment export industry has been the proverbial goose that lays the golden eggs for over fifteen years now. The sector now dominates the modern economy in export earnings, secondary impact and employment generated. The events in 1998 serve to highlight the vulnerability of this industry to both internal and external shocks on the demand and supply side. Given the dominance of the sector in the overall modern economy of Bangladesh, this vulnerability should be a matter of some concern to the policymakers in Bangladesh. Although in gross terms the...
