An absolute privilege to be asked to assist "the nation" on this prestigious project.
From CDM roles on sites in Coventry, Manchester and Weymouth, we were kept on for the Paralympics as well.
Just before this happened, i had a conversation with the crew (who were outside contractors); " Are you sure you don't need spreader mats (that you have just there) before you start ? As footpaths are designed to take the weight of just people not vehicles so have far less stability ..?"
Our job sometimes as Health & Safety Consultants is giving advise that's not heeded ... this i what happens when it goes wrong.
Luckily no injuries just minor damage to the footpath .
How to do it properly
