High street clothing retailer H&M has committed to a fire and safety plan in Bangladesh aimed at preventing any repeats of the building collapse that left more than 1,000 workers dead.
In a statement, the firm said it was committed to supporting the Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh.
Fire and building safety are extremely important issues for us and we put a lot of effort and resources within this area.
H&M has for many years taken the lead to improve and secure the safety of the workers in the garment industry. Our strong presence in Bangladesh gives us the opportunity to contribute to the improvement of the lives of hundreds of thousands of people and contribute to the community's development.
By being on site, put demands on manufacturers and work for continuous improvements, we can slowly but surely contribute to lasting changes.
The accord, over five years, is aimed at improving fire and building safety in the garment industry in Bangladesh to avoid a repeat of the tragedy.
The Rana Plaza building collapse is the latest in a series of deadly incidents in the country, whose garment industry supplies much of the western world.
A young woman has been freed from the wreckage of a building in the Bangladeshi capital 17 days after its collapse killed hundreds.
The Bangladesh High Commissioner has told me he believes that Western companies share some of the blame for conditions in Dhaka's factories.
Primark, who bought products from the factories in the destroyed Rana Plaza in Dhaka, will pay compensation to the families of the victims.
