23rd February 2023

On the seven-year anniversary of the tragic collapse at Didcot A Power Station, which claimed the lives of four demolition operatives, NFDC has reached out to investigators to offer assistance.

NFDC CEO Howard Button, has been in contact with senior officials at the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), to offer the support of the NFDC in investigations, with the hope of expediting a conclusion. At this time the HSE have advised that the police have primacy in the investigation.

The National Federation of Demolition Contractors will continue to assist in the investigation whenever called upon and renews its deepest condolences to the families of those affected.

“Our main concern at this time is closure for the families of the four men we tragically lost from the industry, and for learnings to be published so we can avoid any more incidents like this happening in the future – for the safety of everyone in demolition.”
Howard Button, NFDC CEO.
