Occupational Health and Safety Assessment of Child workers in the Brick Industry, Nepal
PDF File Size: 2.06 MB | Download   
Almost 30,000 children, 5‐17 years old, are estimated to be working in the brick factories of Nepal. And this number appears set to grow given the increasing demand for bricks to support the current rate of urbanization. Poverty, conflict, lack of opportunities and alternatives, and debt bondage are the major factors which are thought to be funneling children out of school and into this industry. Should we be concerned? Is the work that children do really harming them or is it simply a minor role that enables parents to put adequate food on the table? What is known from adult studies is that brick manufacturing is labor intensive, requiring muscular effort in most stages of production. Workers carry heavy loads, remain squatting for long periods, and engage in repetitive tasks all within an environment that is often hot, dusty, and polluted. Working conditions in the brick industry are known to harbour many hazards.
