Abstract

Shipbreaking is the recycling mechanism that is reprocessed or scrapped or disposed of almost obsolete cargo vessels. As the breakdown process of these vessels takes place within a multifarious framework, the workforce is confronting many environmental and health barriers throughout the recycling sector. Bangladesh is well known for earning a good deal of profit from such a precarious and caustic industry on the South-eastern offshore in the country but on the flip side, the masters of this insecure business are actively contravening the employees on the top of that human rights here are completely missing. The current situation in the Chittagong ship-breaking area is getting worse day by day, while current workers are deprived of basic rights, victim workers are completely ignored. The concentration of this research paper is to evaluate the socio-economic status of victims ' workers and to explore the system of rehabilitation of victims ' workers in shipbreaking divisions. This study found that, after the fatal accidents, the condition of victim workers had become more miserable due to deprivation of compensation and other rehabilitation support from the authorities and the government.
