After years of service, a ship usually ends up being chopped down for recycling. That’s when ship breaking services are needed. In Bangladesh, about 150 to 200 ships are being broken every year. That number continues to increase due to very low labor cost.
Ship breaking is one of the world’s most dangerous jobs, but some men in Bangladesh are really desperate for work. Despite the harsh conditions and hazards encountered, they still continue to do the job.
In this type of activity, workers should be protected at all times. Ship breaking is not an easy work, but these workers are not compensated fairly. Their employers should at least provide safety equipment for them.
