Incident at Dunwoody Way, Crewe
Statement issued 23/06/2017 16:30pm
 
 "As we are aware there was an incident on Wednesday afternoon at our construction site on Dunwoody Way in Crewe. This occurred during the erection of a tower crane by Falcon Tower Crane Services Ltd.
 
The incident resulted in the tragic deaths of two crane erectors and the serious, but not life threatening, injuries to the driver.
 
I cannot speculate as to the cause of the incident whilst the facts have not yet been established.  Needless to say, Seddon is co-operating with the Police and Health and Safety Executive during the course of the investigation.
 
Seddon takes its health and safety responsibilities very seriously.  Appropriate action will be taken as a result of this tragic incident and as a business, across all Seddon sites, we will continue to take all reasonable measures to keep people safe.
 
Can I again take this opportunity on behalf of myself and everyone at Seddon to offer my heartfelt condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of those men who so tragically lost their lives on Wednesday. Our thoughts and prayers remain with everybody involved.” 
 
Jonathan Seddon, Chief Executive, Seddon
