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 Royal Portbury Dock when a container attached to a spreader on a Konecranes Reach Stacker (4531TB5 Serial NoM9534) slewed uncontrollably and came in contact with the driver’s cab.
