Video | Why do workers die in Georgia?

2 August 2019

On 16 July, 16-year-old Giorgi Beshkenadze plunged to his death at a construction site in Tbilisi. He is one of more than 400 workers in Georgia who have died in work-related accidents since 2011. We try to understand why.

Right now, online media in Georgia is in dire need of safety equipment, legal support, and technology as we cover increasingly challenging circumstances. Support small, independent media outlets in Georgia via our collective fundraiser.
