    Howletts & Port Lympne Estates Ltd v Langridge HS/32450/95 IT (0 other reports)

In Howletts & Port Lympne Estates Ltd v Langridge, an industrial tribunal substantially amends a HSW Act prohibition notice on the grounds that preventing employees' exposure to a specific hazard, although possible, was not "reasonably practicable" because it prevented the continued use of a practice considered essential to the business.

The appeal arose from Canterbury City Council's attempt to stop the use of a system that bonds tigers with humans - pioneered by John Aspinall and practised at his Kent zoo, Howletts Wild Animal Park.
