Blair v Sussex Police

[2012] EWCA Civ 633


A chief constable had not complied with the requirements of the Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations 1992 reg.4, and was liable for leg injuries sustained by a police officer who was wearing standard issue boots during a motorcycle training course. It was possible, and not impractical, to prevent significant injury to trainees by providing them with stronger boots than the standard issue boots.
