  • HSW Act does not prohibit the undertaking of dangerous work

    1 January 1997

    In Langridge v Howletts and Port Lympne Estates Ltd, the High Court holds that the HSW Act does not legislate as to what work can be undertaken, even if that work is dangerous, but is concerned that the work is done in a way which is safe, so far as is reasonably practicable.
