Published: Tuesday, July 2, 2019 - 13:04

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 recently when a part of a lifting clamp arrangement failed while handling railway lines.  


For more information on the incident, lesson learned, actions that were taken and recommendations on Unsafe Work Equipment incident can be found  below

Special thanks to our member Associated British Ports for sharing this alert with the rest of the industry.
