Five HS2 workers injured in incident

Inspectors from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) are investigating an incident today (Tuesday 29 August) where five HS2 workers were injured.

Work is underway to identify the cause following the incident at the Mandeville Road site next to Northolt Tube station in London, on Saturday 26 August.

Four people involved in the incident have been discharged from hospital while one worker remains in hospital.

Police and emergency services were called to the site on Saturday just after 10.30am to rescue the workers.

A spokesperson for HS2 said: “We are working with our construction partner and the Health and Safety Executive to thoroughly investigate the cause of this incident.

“To facilitate this, all construction work at the site has stopped.

“Four people involved in the incident have been discharged from hospital. One individual remains in hospital and is receiving treatment for a back injury. We wish them well with their recovery.”

HSE Inspector Gordon Nixon said: “We are working with all parties involved. At the moment, we are making initial enquiries. If there will be a full HSE investigation, this will take time.”
