Wharf accident report will address tower crane safety

THE REPORT into the Canary Wharf crane collapse in which three men died will be published this month.

The Health and Safety Executive has confirmed that a discussion document addressing safety concerns into tower crane climbing will finally be released.

An HSE spokeswoman said: 'The discussion paper is in response to some of the findings from the Canary Wharf investigation, although it will not refer specifically to the accident. It will give the industry an opportunity to tell us what they think.'

It is understood that a second report by the HSE for a coroner's inquest, due to be held at Poplar in east London this year, has yet to be completed.
