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 for a positive safety culture.
The UK ports have raised concerns regarding the condition of pre-slung cargo slings. Before using any slings from an unknown source, you must confirm they are safe to use.
For more information on the incident, lesson learned, actions that were taken and recommendation on Pre- Slung Cargo Slings Incident can be found in the attachment below
Thank you to our member port Associated British Ports for sharing this with the industry.
