Unite the Union Health & Safety Committee, calls for a full investigation into the recent incident, at the dry dock facility at Gib Dock.

They say: "It is clear from the footage, that the incident in question was indeed of a serious nature and as a near miss, the cause needs to be fully investigated by an external party (Health & Safety Inspectors)." 

To Unite, if the footage would have not emerged in social media, the issue would have been covered up, as an employer who over the years, has a very poor track record on Health & Safety.

"We are happy that no injury or loss of life occurred, however as we recently highlighted at Workers Memorial Day, we must never remain complacent, as every 15 seconds a worker dies world wide, which is in fact a shocking statistic.”

Lack of investment in the facility at Gib Dock, has overshadowed its operation over the years.

Christian Duo said “This incident reminds us of the important role that Unite health and safety rep undertakes in the workplace, highlighting the fact that Gib Dock is a non-unionised workplace.”

“Unite has well-trained safety reps on many sites and their knowledge and experience in these roles should be appreciated for the benefits they can offer”

Unite Legal Services, "is proud to be providing comprehensive specialist legal support to any members, who have been injured in work.

"Our legal experts are helping our members to achieve justice and recover the compensation they deserve. Our members receive 100 per cent of any compensation recovered."
