  • TITLE: Brick Kilns of Nepal: A Non-Governmental Organization Perspective

    AUTHORS: Shilpa Shrestha, Steven M. Thygerson

    KEYWORDS: Brick Kiln, Air Pollution, Public Health, Child Labor

    JOURNAL NAME: Open Journal of Safety Science and Technology, Vol.9 No.1, February 1, 2019

    ABSTRACT: Better Brick Nepal (BBN) works under the larger NGO, Global Fairness Initiatives, to promote the reliably sourced brick manufacturing by eliminating forced, bonded labor, and child labor, promoting workplace safety and health, providing fair wages, and preventing workplace harassment. The brick industry is regarded as the second largest source for air pollution after vehicle emissions in Kathmandu Valley. The brick kiln workers who live on the kiln premises in huts are highly exposed to both indoor and outdoor air pollution. This study reviewed the practices of BBN kilns that adhere to recommended standards for worker rights, health and safety. An NGO such as BBN is proving successful at eliminating inhumane work practices and in improving brick kiln worker health and safety.
