Mr E from Leeds suffered a laceration to his finger after using defective equipment in work. He had been given the equipment by his employer. The log splitter that he had been issued was defective.
In the case of Mr E it was a defective piece of equipment which caused his injury.

Employers should have performed a risk assessment; this risk assessment should have highlighted any equipment for which the employer needs to be responsible. Annual checks on any equipment which is issued as a requirement for an employee to perform a role or duty within the company should be an absolute minimum requirement which employers need to be made aware that they must fulfil.
