HSE v Enterprise Managed Services Limited

Southwark Crown Court, 2-6 March 2009.

John Cooper successfully defended in this case in which it was alleged that the company had caused a contractor, who was badly injured in a cable strike, to be exposed to obvious risk of injury. It was contended that the company had failed to provide him with proper method statements, risk assessments and cable drawings. It was alleged that these failings were causative. The Judge, Recorder Featherby QC directed on the fifth day of the trial that the jury return a not guilty verdict having ruled that the Prosecution were unable to prove a causative case. The Company was awarded all of its costs.
