March 7, 2001 - Reasonableness In Employee Protection.

Employers have a duty to do what is reasonably practicable to avoid the risk of injury to the public and their employees. This means that they should assess the level of risk involved in the activity, and the time, trouble and expense of avoiding it. If it is not reasonably practicable to avoid the risk, the employer should do what he can to reduce the risk. Employers should always maintain all equipment in good repair. However, if the work equipment failed and caused an injury, no defense is available to employer.

An employer is always liable when precautions were not taken despite the likelihood of a severe injury and when such an injury did indeed occur when it was relatively easy to take precautions and prevent it.
