    Beck v United Closures & Plastics plc [2000] CS (0 other reports)

In Beck v United Closures & Plastics plc [2000] CS, the Court of Session held that doors were not a 'workplace' within the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 but were 'work equipment' for the purposes of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1992.

The claimant claimed compensation for an injury sustained when he trapped his right hand between two heavy doors at his employer's premises while closing them to enable machinery to start up.
