Mr J came to Michael Lewin after he suffered a terrible accident at work. He was aged 52 and was working unwrapping cages warehouse. The warehouse was very dark and therefore Mr J had to unwrap cages in the dark. He was stabbed in the leg by a piece of metal which was sticking out from a defective cage. He suffered a laceration to his leg. Later it was discovered he had also sustained an infection in the laceration. Fortunately the infection was treated successfully.
The warehouse was not in a safe working condition for our client Mr J to be working safely. Employers must not only create a safe working environment but they must enforce it and ensure that it is adhered to. They are responsible for any employee who has either not been trained or is failing to follow correct safety procedures.
Inadequate lighting is an example of an element which should have been maintained properly to reduce the risk of an accident. Mr J had also been provided with defective equipment; the cage that lacerated Mr J’s leg should have been taken out of service after it had been subjected to regular inspections.
