Jan Andresen will discuss a recent court case following the death of a worker when a wall collapsed prematurely during a building demolition.

The talk centres on a court case following the death of a worker when a wall collapsed prematurely in a building being demolished. The incident was the subject of a major investigation by the Police and HSE.

The actions of all parties involved in the contract were scrutinised in detail and charges brought against most of those involved. The project serves as a reminder to engineers of the need to ensure an adequate brief is provided, responsibilities are clear, and that dangers are not ignored.

Speaker

Jan Andresen – HM Principal Specialist Inspector at the HSE
Jan joined the Health and Safety Executive in 2002 as a Specialist Inspector of Health and Safety (Construction), with 15 years of previous experience in consultancy and two years in a contractor’s design office. Since then, he has visited many large high profile demolition projects and has ran the in-house demolition training course for 10 years. Currently, he is the HSE technical lead for matters relating to structures, demolition, and refurbishment, liaising with the trade bodies. 

During Jan's time with the HSE, he has written over 100 Expert Witness reports for the criminal courts across a range of subjects, of which 20 have concerned demolition activities whilst also been involved in the detailed investigation of major collapses that have occurred during demolition.

Jan also serves on the Institution’s Health Safety and Wellbeing Panel and is an expert panel member of CROSS.
