PEMA and TT Club co-operate to promote port equipment safety

The Port Equipment Manufacturers Association (PEMA) and TT Club have announced that they will co-operate to promote best practice in the safe design and operation of port equipment worldwide.

The agreement was finalised at PEMA’s recent AGM in Amsterdam, where Laurence Jones, Director of Global Risk Assessment for the TT Club, presented the results of his recent research into causes of equipment accidents and loss in the global port and terminal sector.

As the leading insurer to the global marine terminal market, TT Club has a wealth of insight into the key factors contributing to accidents involving port equipment, including ship to shore cranes, straddle carriers, yard cranes and smaller mobile equipment. PEMA will now feature TT Club’s research and advisories on its website and will work with the Club to highlight the role of equipment design and technology in reducing port accidents and loss.
