Anyone know the gen on this?
We're told at work that they (the company) can't salt the floor - the yard, the pavements, the whatever around the place.
If they leave it & a member of the public slips, then it's tough luck. Act of God & all that.
If they salt it & a member of the public slips, then they've interfered with God's act & changed the ice/snow & are therefore liable.
We naturally think that it's more along the lines of if they salt the place, then that would be approx 1/2ton - 1ton salt that they could've sold....but now can't.
Anyone know the claim law on this out of curiosity?
As a side issue:
Nearly drove into a wall today when i came to clock on.
A driver of ours DID drive into a wall.
I've ploughed through a pack of paving flags (not going fast either) & a whole pallett of spar
I almost nearly speared a customers leg with my fork lift today, all due to this sheet of ice that formed over night.
