Mr A from York was 30 years old when he was injured after using defective equipment which his workplace had issued him. Our client suffered an electrocution when the buffer machine which he was using was faulty.
When workplaces are required to issue staff with equipment this equipment should undergo safety checks regularly the employer should also have available to all staff or a procedure to follow whereby staff can make the employer aware of any faulty or defective equipment before it causes any harm.
If defective equipment has caused an accident in the workplace all possible causes will be investigated. Service records will be looked over and reports of defects will be examined. The frequency of inspections will also be taken into account if an investigation is required.
Employers must create a safe working environment and they must police this environment to ensure that this set of procedures are adhered to strictly it is the employer’s responsibility for any employee who has been incorrectly trained or fails to follow the correct safety procedures if they come to harm.
