In Bangladesh, men desperate for work perform one of the world's most dangerous jobs. They demolish huge ships in grueling conditions, braving disease, pollution, and the threat of being crushed or stabbed by steel sliced from the hulls. ➡ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/NatGeoSubscribe About National Geographic: National Geographic is the world's premium destination for science, exploration, and adventure.

Ship breaking yards in Chittagong are a contributing factor to coastal belt pollution in Sitakunda. Working conditions are also very poor including smoke and dust inhalation as well as some asbestos featuring in the area. Chittagong, Bangladesh. 09/08/2008. Ship breaking recycles old ships which are passed their life span, the recycling is done by breaking up ships for scrap metal. Most ships have lifespan of several decades before repair work becomes uneconomical. Ship breaking allows for materials from the ship, mainly steel that is used as raw materials of the steel re-rolling industry in Bangladesh. Some other countries use these scrap steel to build new vessels besides using as raw materials in steel re-rolling industries. While the ship breaking industry formed in the port cities of ...
Workers' deaths at the ship-breaking yards of Chittagong are a common incident, as is environmental poisoning. But researchers have now detected one deadly illness that has been silently affecting the workers for decades. Many ships that come to the yards are filled with the mineral asbestos, used in the 1980s and '90s for insulation on high-heat areas such as boilers and steam pipes. It has since been banned across the world for safety concerns. In a recent study, Bangladesh Occupational Safety, Health and Environment Foundation (OSHE) found that almost 33% of the ship-breaking workers are affected by asbestosis, an incurable disease caused by breathing the mineral in the form of dust or fume.
Shows the step-by-step construction of a pre-fabricated ship, the SS Robert E. Peary Liberty class naval cargo ship at Permanente Metals Corporation No. 2 Yard in Richmond, California. Filmed during the early days of America's involvement in World War Two, this ship set a record breaking time for construction at just 4 days, 15 hours and 29 minutes after the keel was laid down. The film shows all aspects of construction, as well as detailed scenes of activities at the dockyards and the successful launching of the ship.

Bangladesh is a friendly but frequently misunderstood country. It usually only gets a mention by western media when a disaster occurs. Few tourist go there, which is good for those that do, but not so for the Bangladesh economy. This is the first of a series of videos shot on a visit I made in January 2013. Part one starts with a visit to the spectacular and surreal ship breaking yards on the beach north of Chittagong. Hundreds of ships are dismantled here each year using mostly manual labour, very little mechanisation is employed. The work is hard, dirty and dangerous but it gives thousands of men employment and wages to feed their families. Change must take place, but not at the expense of creating starvation conditions for these people. It took Great Britain over two hundred years to cr...
