    Chalk v Devizes Reclamation Co Ltd 24 February 1999 CA (0 other reports)

In Chalk v Devizes Reclamation Co Ltd, the Court of Appeal reverses a crown court decision and holds that an employee is not entitled to damages for a back injury because the manner in which the injury was sustained indicated that the provision of training, advice or instruction would not have averted the accident. The system of work, the Court holds, was therefore not unsafe.
