The ports sector is a mature industry which has served the UK in various forms for hundreds of years. Work in ports has always had the potential to be a hazardous undertaking and despite  some  major improvements over recent years we must continue that improvement to ensure that we continue to control risk to a high standard.

We, the ports industry, Unite the Union and the Health and safety Executive (HSE) have jointly developed a leadership document to share ways that can help to foster an effective health and safety culture within your organisations as we agree that productivity cannot be sustained without effective health and safety leadership and engagement.

This pivotal leadership and engagement guidance aims to;

  • Refresh your knowledge of effective health and safety leadership and worker engagement
  • Encourage reflection on your current approaches
  • Challenge you to continuously improve health and safety performance within your organisations
