Since March of 2011 more than 600 – six hundred – factory employees have lost their lives to Fires in a single International market sector – CLOTHING MANUFACTURING.
These markets include U.S.A., Pakistan and India.
Many who work within the clothing Industry do so at minimum wage levels and work within poorly maintained areas. The omission of effective fire protection equipment and systems continuously place their lives at risk.
The most important part of any Industry is the personnel who work within it. Without them there is no business. Whilst there may always be others waiting to replace existing personnel these new individuals will require training. The results are a short term fall in productivity and therefore financial profit to the factory owner or operator. Employees should therefore be viewed as an investment as much as an expense or overhead. Protection of that investment by an FM approved and UL listed detection product can be surprisingly economic to the end user customer.
