PSS along with Port Industry Chief Executive has identified six key priorities for the sector, one of which is " Early Information Sharing". This sharing of early information among port members can help prevent a similar occurrence in other PSS member ports. This is a proactive method of managing Health & Safety within organizations and is a leading indicator of a positive safety culture.

An incident occurred at Haldia Port in West Bengal, when a crane operator was forced to jump from the counterweight of his mobile crane, circa 15 meters above the quayside after the crane caught fire.
