168 .         General responsibility

        (1)         The Port Authority is responsible for working the cranes, but shall not supply, nor accept any responsibility for, the safety of slings used for lifting cargo out of or into vessels.

        (2)         Every crane shall be operated by an employee of the Port Authority and that employee shall, as far as possible and consistent with safety, be subject to and obey the instructions of the hirer, his stevedore or agent, but the Port Authority is not liable for any loss or damage whatever that may occur while the employee is operating the crane, during the period of hire, unless the loss or damage is proved to be the direct result of wilful misconduct or wilful disobedience of any reasonable order on the part of the employee.
