Bangladesh is a developing country. In Bangladesh, there are lots of factories for different readymade garments products. Products are used in Bangladesh and also export to many different countries. A huge number of populations are working in these industries as workers. In Bangladesh, for nearly a decade the garment industry contributing to the country's economic growth reached an impressive 6 percent growth rate. Bangladesh is now a day one of the world's leading clothing exporters, and the garment industry employs 3.6 million workers out of a total population of over 150 million. Most of the nation's 4,500 factories are concentrated around the capital city named Dhaka and attract thousands of rural residents in search of jobs and a better life for their families. These factories are not well designed in terms of workers' health and safety. A field study was held about the health and safety of workers in the factory in Bangladesh. For the study, a questionnaire survey was held among the management staff of factories. The management staff responded and get information about factories of the current condition. This Study will help to find out the current indoor condition of the factory building in terms of health and safety of workers and help to introduce a standard towards factory owners which can introduce in their factory to develop the indoor condition.
