  • "Management at the Kabir Shipbreaking Yard ordered the 'fitter' men, who work at the bottom of the ship, to break up asbestos, unbolt and take apart dozens of pipelines and gas and oil tanks. The work is dangerous, since residual gas and oil leak and form pools on the floor, and pockets of gas vapors build up."
