PSS along with Port Industry Chief Executive have identified six key priorities for the sector, one of which is " Early Information Sharing". This proactive sharing of early information among port members can help prevent a similar occurrence in the ports. 

An incident involving a redundant JCB loading shovel. The loading shovel required three of the four tyres to be inflated before it can be driven onto the low loader. The staff reversed the tractor unit up to the loading shovel and attached an airline to the on-board compressor to inflate the tyres. Unfortunately, the incident result in the death of the employee.
