Case 1: Responsibility for Accident

On May 15, JaneDoe, a companyemployee, seriously injured her hand while pushing a large piece of wood through a table saw in the mechanical shop.  There is now a dispute over who is to blame for the accident, the company or the employee.

The injured employee claims that she followed all the company's safety procedures and that the company is at fault because it did not guarantee that the machine was as safe as possible for use. The company shop manager, John Smith, asserts that the machine was in safe condition, because if it hadn't been, the shop foreman, King Clown, would have informed him.

The foreman, King Clown, insists that the machine was maintained satisfactorily; he has produced the written maintenance records.  The foreman also claims that prior to the accident he saw the employee "joking, laughing and goofing around" with his co-workers.

A co-worker supports the claim of the injured employee, insisting that despite regular maintenance on the table saw, it was not safe because the safety guard was poorly designed and didn't function well.  The co-worker claims that shop workers informed the foreman about the issues with the safety guard.   

A health and safety report determined and reported that the safety guard was poorly designed to protect operators in a number of circumstances.
