Latest incident at DP World deepens Unite's concerns about safety at Southampton docks

A Unite member and crane operator has been left seriously ill in hospital after an incident operating a crane while servicing a container ship.
The incident took place this morning (Monday) at DP World's Southampton container terminal.
Matt Tipper, Unite regional industrial organiser, said: “This is the second serious incident in 2009 involving crane operations in DP World and we are obviously concerned over the health and safety implications for the workers there.
"This is of paramount importance to us and we will fully assist in the HSE investigation also providing full support to our member and his family at this very worrying time for them in everyway we can.”
