You Must Take Extra Precautions Where Someone is More Susceptible To Injury
Following on from the video I did yesterday (‘What Do I Do As A Trainer If I Believe a Learner is Not Fit Enough To Undertake the Training?’) I’ve been sent some information by a good friend of mine who is also a very competent and highly qualified Health & Safety Professional that adds additional value to what I put out yesterday.
The information relates to the case of Paris v Stepney Borough Council (1951) AC 367, and the House of Lords ruling in this case from the was that if an employer knows of a condition in an employee which makes that employee more susceptible to injury or makes the consequences of injury more severe than usual, he must take extra precautions.
I hope you find the video useful and please leave any comments below that you feel may add value and if you wish to share this video please feel free to do so.
