Ship building is an emerging industry of Bangladesh. There are many ship building yards in Keraniganj. Anyone can hear the sounds of the hammering from the riverbank of Buriganga in old Dhaka town. The workers of ship building yard have the ability to build small to medium sea going vessels in these yards. By using very few mechanical aids and equipments they only make it possible by their group works and extremely hard working mental strength. Interestingly none of these workers got any personal protecting equipment from the authority. But many of them have to work in a challenging and risky environment. Those who works in hammering section does not get any protection in their ear so many of them experienced hearing problem after few days. They did not have any insurance coverage either personal or from the authority. If any workers died accidentally the authority give 25 thousand taka to the family of the victim once only.
