I did ask the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) whether it had been informed. "As there was no formal requirement to let us know about the incident we were not aware of it at the time," said an HSE spokesman. "This is because it did not fall under RIDDOR reportable incidents, i.e. no injury, no release of materials etc. Rather this is something that the HSE inspector would have discussed on his next routine site visit."

It would be interesting to know whether the incident has been reported to the HSE under the "Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995" as a dangerous occurrence, where something happens that does not result in an injury, but could have done; and what action the HSE have taken.
