Child Labour: Children and Machines

A young boy operates a lathe in a small machining shop in Sadarghat, Dhaka.

I found this boy working in a small shop in Sadarghat. The shop was about two metres squared and contained nothing but this machine and a wall of mounted tools. There were no safety guards of any sort on the machine, and he was regularly sticking his fingers into the gears to brush out small pieces of metal. Even the belts in the foreground were dangerous, randomly flinging small metal shards into the air.
