The Ports has been linked to three deaths in recent years, and last Tuesday an independent health and safety review found the need for significant improvements. Ports’ chief executive Tony Gibson said things would change, but on Thursday a stevedore fell six feet through a rusted hatch on a ship, suffering a number of injuries.
