- Today in the port of Gioia Tauro a maintenance worker
buses carrying workers to the terminal container area
calabrian airport died overwhelmed by a vehicle,
accident, the causes of which are still being investigated.
Expressing his condolences and closeness to
family members and colleagues of the worker who this morning
tragically lost his life, the extraordinary commissioner
The Port Authority of Gioia Tauro, Andrea Agostinelli,
underlined that this is the "second, and in some ways
disconcerting, accident at work, which occurs within a
year in the port of Gioia Tauro. I believe -- he added -- that the
circumstance requires an elementary reflection so that certain
tragedies don't happen anymore, all the more so in the
same period in which the company and all its workers
demonstrated strong commitment and full compliance with the anti-Covid-19 rules.
In this regard - concluded Agostinelli - we will make the evaluations
appropriate when the dynamics are clear
of the incident, but I remind myself that safety and the
respect for human life take priority over everything."
