Orzechowska v ABF Plc (trading as Speedibake)

Negligence – Personal injury. The claimant tripped over a piece of permanent plant (a pipe) in the defendant's factory and brought a claim in personal injury based on Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992. The trial judge found that the pipe did not pose any danger to anyone and dismissed the claim. On appeal the Queen's Bench upheld that decision of the trial judge on the basis that the pipe was part of the plant and was where it always had been.
