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 operative was opening a centre post on a trailer's nearside, as the post was released, it became detached from the roof of the unit and fell on the ground.
For more information on the incident, lesson learned, actions that were taken and recommendations on Curtain Side Trailers incident can be found in the attachment below
Thank you to our member port Forth Ports for sharing this with the industry
