Preface

Despite some eight years having now passed since section 69 of the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act 2013 abolished civil liability for injuries caused by an employer’s breach of a statutory health and safety duty, the question of what relevance such a breach has to a common law damages claim remains largely unanswered. There has been a trickle of first instance decisions from both England and Wales and Scotland which contain oblique obiter dicta relating to the point. At the time of writing (November 2021), a fully argued and reasoned appellate authority is still keenly awaited and is now overdue.
