Case law a weird one

Post by Penfold » Fri Nov 09, 2018 8:48 pm

Hi all

A while back I watched a tv programme where they talked about a woman killed due to complacency to risk. It’s difficult question as I can’t remember much but basically a woman in uk dealt with item and had to leave it for a certain period of time to allow for static to discharge (I think) and due to years of doing it she went back early and died a result of explosion

Does anyone recognise anything I’m talking about and could give me more details of the actual case?

I’m sure it wasn’t a dream :D

I'm sure there's probably been a few cases over the years, but finding it documented/reported as case law may be difficult...

And the HSE website is down again today so that's no help.... :evil:
