Robert Solomon, PE, NFPA Division Manager for Building Fire Protection and Life Safety, was a featured speaker and panelist at the International Conference on Globalization and Sustainability of Bangladesh Garment Industry. This symposium, held at Harvard University on Saturday, June 14, 2014, was co-sponsored by NFPA .  Robert provided guidance on how NFPA's codes and standards can improve fire safety in developing nations for an audience of over 100 business leaders, government officials, labor leaders and academics from the U.S. and Bangladesh.
NFPA hosted a delegation from Bangladesh at the 2014 NFPA Conference & Expo  last week as well.  In addition to meeting with President James Shannon, the group had the opportunity to learn about fire and electrical safety technologies and strategies that will support their efforts to improve garment factory safety. </p>
