||This videocassette exposes the dangerous working conditions of the men who dismantle ships in the ship-breaking yards of India and Bangladesh. It reveals hazards such as manual handling of steel plates, work in extreme temperatures with primitive machinery, long hours of work and a lack of training and workers' rights. Interviews with shipowners, government and industry experts and the workers themselves reveal the complex issues that surround this industry.
