THE HEALTH and Safety Executive has launched investigations into two separate accidents at Canary Wharf which put a pair of workers in hospital.
An electrician employed by Hills Electrical & Mechanical at DS1 was taken to Chelmsford Hospital last week with burns to his hands and face.
According to the HSE the man was testing electrical circuits before the building is handed over to the client. He did not touch the circuit but received an electric shock via arcing.
An unnamed Turkish worker employed by Fast Track Engineering at HQ2 on the night of Thursday April 19, was found injured by the night watchman at 1.30 am, a site source said.
An HSE spokesman confirmed the man had been carrying out welding work on columns and had fallen into a pit in the ground 2.5 m deep.
The man received treatment at the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel.
Both men are recovering from their injuries.
