Successful case brought for breach of PUWER regulations when a train driver was injured at work by flying glass particles

The cabin of a train is sealed whilst moving, so when our client was injured by an object (later found to be glass particles) flying into his eye, he assumed it had come through the air conditioning system. The Judge ruled a breach of PUWER 1998 (Regulations 5 and 12) had taken place.

Accident at Work Compensation awarded after failure of PPE boots caused injury to LU railway worker

When our client was issued with safety work boots, which he was required to wear as PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) whilst he was working on the railway lines, he naturally assumed that if they were safe to wear as PPE, they were safe to wear throughout his working day. As his employer was London Underground, this naturally involved an element of walking up and down stairs at various times and locations. On one occasion, he fell down the stairs, causing him injury. On inspection, his boots had torn at the heel, causing the accident at work and his injury.

Rolls Royce engineer receives compensation after accepted working practices contravene written instructions and risk assessments

Normally the presence of training, risk assessments and written instructions would indicate a company that tries to minimise the risk of accidents at work, provide a safe working environment for its staff, and takes its liabilities for their safety very seriously. However, when accepted working practices are very different to any written instructions, then the safety of employees is at risk once more.

Compensation for driver with thumb crushed by train door

A train driver had his right thumb crushed as he tried to close a train door. He had twice tried to close it with his left hand but it bounced back. He then tried to close it with both hands as his right hand had more strength. In doing so his right thumb was crushed as it overhung the side of the door on the doorframe.
