Entry 21033 Winner Fatal 3
In 2020, at Imerys Aluminates’ West Thurrock site there was an incident where migrants were discovered inside one of their raw material tankers arriving from continental Europe. The police were called and thankfully, all were safe and well.
This event highlighted the need to inspect all incoming tankers for illegal migrants before pumping off. It also highlighted that while there was a safe system for accessing tankers and opening ports at the loading stations, it relied on drivers using their single handrail, this still exposed them to a work at height risk.
To mitigate this risk, a truck gantry was installed.
