Bypassing safety measures

Few days back I was visiting this factory whose primary business is assembling of engines (I will not disclose the name) where I found this guy who was working on the furnace without any protection except gloves which he wore (The industry cap in the picture is borrowed from another worker only for this shot). I was amazed to see such high temperature molten aluminium which was boiling in the furnace and took this picture in a hurry due to heat of the furnace. When I asked this guy, he told me that its temperature is near 750 degrees. I with my crew took some of his pictures and made some video shots.

When we were about to leave the site, the same guy that we shot and video taped stopped me and innocently requested me not to make these shots and videos public or submit a report to any television channel and/or specifically the Geo TV. Upon questioning and interrogating this guy, i found a reply that shook me. He said that “Because this is one of the most dangerous jobs at the factory, if his mother saw him working on the furnace, she will never allowe him to work”. This guy was not wearing any guard or safety equipment other than just a pair of gloves. On my way back I was thinking that how many men are working like that in Karachi without any precautions and risking their lives and no one ever thinks about their safety.
