Port safety under scrutiny

[ February 24, 2020   //   ]

ICHCA (International Cargo Handling Coordination Association) and HSE’s Science and Research Centre are hosting a collaborative workshop to develop a new industry-wide strategy to improve safety across the port sector.

This one day facilitated workshop, which will take place on 7 April at HSE’s Science and Research Centre in Buxton, will form part of a larger ICHCA health and safety convention that includes the biannual meeting of the organization’s Technical Panel on 8 April.

Chairman of ICHCA International, John Beckett said that while there had been a dramatic improvement in safety over the past 20 years, the reduction in incidents has stagnated and there have been over 200 fatalities since the start of 2018.
