Rotary Yorkshire Ltd v Hague

Health and safety at work – Health and safety inspector. The defendant inspector employed by the Health and Safety Executive served a prohibition notice against the appellant sub-contractor on the basis that the appellant had not prevented access to conducting parts of the electrical system that 'can be energised and made live'. On appeal by the appellant, the employment tribunal (the tribunal) modified the notice, but upheld it. The Administrative Court, in allowing the appellant's appeal, held that the tribunal had been wrong to decide that the only means of dealing with the situation had been the issue of the notice.
