The ready-made garment sector in Bangladesh holds significant importance as the highest foreign currency earning sector. However, ensuring occupational health and safety within this industry has become a global priority due to past accidents and incidents. While several theoretical studies have identified occupational risk factors in the garment industry, most of these have solely focused on listing these factors without a comprehensive analysis. In reality, each risk factor must be individually assessed within the specific industry, necessitating close collaboration with employees working in that environment. Addressing these concerns, our research proposes a systematic process to quantitatively evaluate occupational risks and offer solutions for existing risks in the garment industry. To achieve this, we employed the AHP approach to estimate the impact of risk factors and adopted the GRA method to identify critical alternatives associated with these risks. By selecting and assessing five evaluation criteria and twelve risk factors, our research aims to effectively support the garment industry by identifying the most influential risk factors and proposing initiatives to address these challenges appropriately.
