The premise of this research concerns occupational safety and labour rights in Bangladesh’s garment sector and of its enhancement. It is literally concentrated on the constant drawbacks of the working conditions and the impact of the involved actors’; their roles, power, functions as well as the possible solutions. In fact, there are a lot of problems in Bangladesh e.g., unrest concerning the political condition, unequal power distribution, poverty, etc. None of them are explored elaborately in this research, rather the focus is on concentrating the vulnerable group- garment workers,’ those have a large contribution to the national economy but can’t practice their legitimate rights due to lack of implementation of government laws and regulations, or have been consigned to the bottom line amongst other setbacks. After the catastrophe in Bangladesh’s garment sector occurred in 2013, killing 1,138 workers the authorities need to act in order to get better conditions, i.e. what has already been done and what remains to be done. Furthermore, throughout my report, I have put my best effort in to answer this research question: How the occupational safety and labour rights can be enhanced in the Bangladesh’s garment sector? To answer this I have included the philosophical considerations of other scholars and have eventually come up with possible conclusion through my interpretation. As we know that in social science, the premises can be varied from person to person, and, therefore, there is not such an easy way to reach to an absolute conclusion. However, I intend to reach a conclusion as close as possible.
