Primark completes structural surveys

Primark has completed its programme of structural surveys in Bangladesh on buildings housing production of Primark garments. None of the buildings surveyed to date have been found to present a risk to workers' lives. Where surveys have uncovered the need for remediation, this is now being addressed accordingly.

Primark's programme began in June 2013, following the collapse of the Rana Plaza building. The surveys have been conducted to the highest international standards by an expert team of structural and civil engineers from specialist engineering and architectural firm Medway Consultancy Services (MCS).

Primark is also a member of the Bangladesh Accord on Building and Fire Safety and was the first UK brand to sign the Accord.
