Mrs L 48 from Sleaford slipped on some ice in the car park at work. When she slipped she suffered a stress fracture to her left foot.
It was up to Mrs L’s employer to ensure that the car park was free from hazards such as ice. It is not just inside the actual place of work that employers are expected to provide a safe working environment. Mrs L’s employers should have made sure that the car park was accessible and safe for staff to use especially in cold icy weather.
