  • Poor Working Conditions : The Ship Breakers of Bangladesh

    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 ...

  • Asbestosis: The slow poison killing ship-breaking workers

    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.

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.

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 countries such as United States and Great Britain, it was so only till the end of 20th century. Today, most ship breaking yards are in some countries of Asia, principally Pakistan, Bangladesh, and India. This is because the labour costs are lower and the environmental regulations for ship breaking are less stringent—there are no guidelines for the disposal of lead paint and other toxic substances that are released in the process of breaking. As a country, Bangladesh is dependent on ship-breaking for its domestic steel requirements—scrap ships provide about 80% of the country's steel needs. Additionally, around three million people are directly or indirectly employed in the industry (40% of the work force comprises of child labourers). But the ground reality of this industry is a far cry from these benefits. Most of the ship breaking yards are in Sitakunda at Chittagong thereby polluting the coastal belt of Sitakunda. The working conditions, too, are very dangerous. Dangerous vapours and fumes from burning materials can be inhaled, and dusty asbestos-laden areas are commonplace and protective equipment is most times absent or inadequate. As a result, there are huge casualties causing loss of lives every year. An alarming statistics shows such casualties left around 600 workers killed and another three thousand injured or disabled in the last 15 years. The casualties mainly result from oil or gas chamber blasts, flammable substances, fall from high places, manual carrying of heavy steel sheets etc. Despite these conditions, every year lots of people from all over Bangladesh, especially from the northern part of the country, come to this industry to manage their living.

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 create safe industrial practices and provide the workforce with good working conditions, we cannot expect Bangladesh to achieve these changes overnight. Following the shipbreaking sequence there are some scenes at a station near Chittagong. Then video shot during a daylight journey from Chittagong to Dhaka on the Sudarna Express. Note the many snack vendors, there is no need to go hungry on a Bangladesh train! The 320km line is currently being doubled throughout to increase capacity and shorten journey time.
