Fatal accident sparks safety concerns at Port of Oakland – Time for advanced Root Cause Analysis?

William Brand and Harry Harris of the Bay Area Newsgroup reported that an accident killed a man at the Port of Oakland this week.

A previous fatality in September has longshoremen worried about port safety.

What caused these fatalities? The story implies that the push for production may be leading to unsafe work practices.

Seems like the Port should be considering advanced root cause analysis to find the real causes of these accidents and develop effective corrective actions.
