This week, Ravi, a 22 year old factory worker at JK Tyre factory in the city of Mysuru, southern India, was crushed to death. Ravi was at the end of his shift when, while loading raw materials, his hand got caught between two big rollers and he was dragged into them. While Ravi had been working at the factory for six years, he was still only employed as a casual day labourer. Many Indian workplaces are unsafe and the increasing use of a casualised workforce only serves to increase the risk to workers of accidents and injuries.
