Safety Action

Summary

Safety action by operator

The operator has introduced a new load control management system that is now controlling loading in all ports except one. The last port should be incorporated into the system by April 1999.

The new system is computer-based and eliminates any requirement for load controllers to leave their workstations. Regardless of their location, gang leading hands have immediate radio communication with load controllers to discuss any problems or variations. Freight shed staff, customer service staff and traffic staff have immediate communication with load controllers by telephone.

A manual for operation of the system has been produced and issued to staff.

Safety action by BASI

BASI is monitoring the operation of the new system.
