Miss S was on a college course when her accident occurred. Miss S had not been provided with the appropriate equipment whilst on the course and this was the reason she suffered an injury.
Miss S dropped a heavy rock onto her foot. As Miss S had not been provided with safety footwear the rock fell to the ground and crushed her foot.
