Gatwick Airport death to be investigated by Health and Safety Executive

The death of a man while working at Gatwick Airport is to be investigated by Britain’s national safety regulator.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) have taken over a probe launched after Marius Badiou died on July 21, 2022, while acting as a slinger signaller – a role which helps ensure worksite safety while a crane is lifting an object.

The investigation will determine if any breaches under the Health and Safety at Work Act have occurred at the Gatwick Railway Redevelopment Project, after the British Transport Police concluded their part of the probe.

HSE principal inspector Ross Carter said: “It is important HSE completes the investigation into Marius’s death to determine the cause of this incident.

“HSE will draw upon the evidence gathered so far and call upon its own specialist investigators and independent support in what is likely to be a complex investigation.
