    Malcolm v Metropolitan Police Commissioners 1995 5 CLR 368 HC (0 other reports)

In Malcolm v Metropolitan Police Commissioners 1995 5 CLR 368 HC, the High Court held that the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992, regulation 5 creates an absolute statutory duty and proof that a defect in equipment had caused an accident would fix the duty holder with civil liability.

The claimant brought an action for compensation against the defendants after her right arm was trapped in a defective lift door.
