The Bleeding Dockyard – Tuzla Tersanesi

Between 2000 and 2008, 55 workers lost their lives in the Tuzla Dockyard. According to NTV Turkey, in 2006 there has been 18.500 accidents with minor injuries and deaths. 18.500 is an astonishing number of accidents taking place in a dockyard. It means something like an accident in an hour, or 7/24 open to accidents. In the previous months accidents began to take place more frequently, and workers without social insurance are the biggest group.
