The Baseline Survey on child workers in welding establishments is the first attempt by Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics (BBS) to estimate the incidence and distribution of this target group at the national level. The study was conducted by Centre for Software and Info Processing (CSIP) and it covered welding establishments in both urban and rural areas of the country. In addition to the national and regional distribution of this target population and the welding establishments in which they work, the report also presents detailed information on type and characteristics of the welding establishments as well as on the perspectives of owners/employers of the establishments. The demographic and socioeconomic characteristics of the working children, hours worked, earnings, their working environment, health care, safety, personal behavior, attitude and perception of working children are also presented in the report. In addition to the first-ever quantification of various indicators relevant for this sector, the emerging reality of the welding sector is expected to provide inputs towards developing policies and action programmes to combat child labour in this sector.
