American and European retailers that formed two separate groups to improve factory safety after the April collapse of a Bangladesh building killed more than 1,100 workers have reached agreement on joint inspection standards for the country's apparel factories. "These standards are very robust, but also reasonable and will make a big difference in the safety of garment factories in Bangladesh," said Brad Loewen, the chief safety inspector for the Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh, whose 100 members include H&M, Marks & Spencer and Carrefour.
