Surge in number of accidents in Bangladesh shipbreaking yards

Author: NGO Shipbreaking Platform, Published on: 6 December 2017

...[T]he accident rate for the three first quarters of 2017 [in the shipbreaking yards in Chittagong, Bangaldesh] has surged with 8 injuries and 6 deaths recorded in ten separate incidents in the last two months alone...

...Ship owners that sell their ships for dirty and dangerous breaking are now also being brought to court...[Mohamed Edris' case against Zodiac Maritime] is the first time that an injured worker demands compensation from a ship owner directly...

...Zodiac has continued to sell its ships to Bangladesh, despite the pending legal case against them, demonstrating that they have no consideration for causing harm as a result of their dirty business. 

[Also refers to Berge Bulk, Costamare, GPH Ispat, Greek Polys Haji-Ioannou Group, Petrobas, Sheema Automatic Re Rolling Mills, Teekay]
