Members of the public are entitled to expect public places to meet minimum standards of safety for them to be able to use the space for the purpose which it was intended to be used as with the knowledge that owners and directors of these spaces are legally obliged to carry out a risk assessment. As part of this risk assessment and of the on-going risk assessment which should be undertaken on a regular basis by the business owner any defective or faulty equipment or flooring should be repaired immediately when the defect is noticed.
If owners and directors of these public places such as supermarkets shopping centres car showrooms etc. fail to perform any part of these risk assessments or maintenance will ensure that the owners are fully liable to pay compensation for any injuries and rehabilitation which you may later require.
