WASHINGTON — Human Rights Watch said in a new study released Tuesday that thousands of workers toiling in leather tanneries near Dhaka, Bangladesh, have been exposed to hazardous chemicals and are often injured in “horrific workplace accidents” due to failed government intervention.
Bangladesh exported $663 million in leather and leather goods products such as handbags, shoes, suitcase and belts, to some 70 countries around the world, including the U.S., China, South Korea, Japan, Italy, Germany and Spain, from June 2011 through July 2012, according to the report.
