Dear Health and Safety Executive,

In June 2011 Londonist magazine reported that a crane operator at the Olympic Park had been found dead following an overnight storm. I am advised by the Department of Culture, Media, and Sport (who now hold the records from the Olympic Park construction) that you would have investigated the incident in 2011 and concluded whether it was a work-related death or not. Can you please provide any records (suitably redacted if needed) from the incident and your analysis of it, and further confirm why the death wasn't classified as work-related?

Yours faithfully,

Pip Moss

Health and Safety Executive
