Firefighter receives compensation for injuries after deploying hose

A man has received damages for his injuries when uncoiling a fire hose.

The firefighter began unravelling the fire hose which was rolled up using the Dutch roll method. He and his colleagues had no training in this and as he deployed the hose, a trailing coupling flung up and hit him above the left eye.

The claimant cut above his left eye area, and had to attend hospital. His eye is permanently scarred.

After contacting our accident at work team, the worker was awarded a compensation sum for his injuries.
