HSE involvement in a work related road traffic incident

The request was successful.

Dear Health and Safety Executive,

Although the Road Traffic Act is not enforced by the HSE, I would like to request information that the HSE may hold into the following tragic incident (as reported by BBC News Online)


In the HSE guidance INDG382(rev1) 'Driving at Work - Managing Work Related Road Safety', it states on page 2: 'In most cases, the police will continue to take the lead on investigating road traffic incidents on public roads. HSE will usually only take enforcement action where the
police identify that serious management failures have been a significant contributory
factor to the incident.'

As such could you please confirm if this matter was referred to the HSE and if you had any involvement in any shape or form (ie. investigation, enforcement action, etc.) with regard to the contractor concerned, Amey?

Yours faithfully,
Richard Davis
