Being an employer failed to provide a system of work such that, so far as is practicable, his employees are not exposed to hazards.
On 24 September 1996 it was observed at the defendant's workshop that an employee was elevated on a pallet, attached to a forklift truck, to a height of between 4 to 5 metres. Alongside the employee, on a pallet, was a CIG oxyacetylene unit. The employee was wearing a welder's helmet, with the visor in the raised position, and no harness or fall arrest equipment was attached to him. The employee was welding a beam to the rafters.
Management were approached with a view to stopping the activity until a safe method of carrying out the work could be arranged. Subsequently a scaffold was hired to complete the work.
