There has been a “blitz”of safety inspections launched at docks around Irish ports in response to concerns about five workplace deaths since the start of last year.
As The Irish Times reports, the Health and Safety Authority (HSA) started the unannounced inspections on Monday morning, days after the latest serious accident at Dublin Port.
It is understood a Moldovan person found in a skip with crush injuries at Dublin Port on Monday, September 30th, remains critically ill in the intensive care unit at the Mater hospital.
The HSA said there were five recorded workplace deaths at ports and docks countrywide since January 2018. Three of these were at Dublin Port, one was at Rosslare Ferryport and one at Waterford.
