The ship building yards of Dhaka are possible one of the most hazzardist workplaces I’ve very seen. People climb around skeletal ship frames in bear feet and no safety ropes. Arch wielding equipment is left lying around the place with bear wires gaffer tapper into homemade voltage converters. In the foundries people do everything by hand and walk around in bear feet with moult metal in pools on the ground.
But in the week I was there I saw and heard of no injuries which is amazing given the conditions.
Up stream in Chittagong big ship are broken up and many of the parts come to Dhaka to be reassembled for local passenger vessels. Somehow it all works in it’s own way.
