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.

Only used tools provided in your workplace for safety purpose and should be properly checked, maintained and rated. Power tools must not be brought from home to work.
