CASE : Boon v Summs of Qld Pty Ltd  QCA 038
Imagine this. You are on a lunch break with fellow employee’s and as you walk past a dining table one of your workmates who was cutting an orange with a knife waves his hand about in conversation at the very moment you are walking past resulting in three of your fingers being cut off!
Who is responsible?
Well the Queensland Court of Appeals says the Employer is to blame (as well as the guy wielding the knife). Essentially the Employer should have known better than to allow employee’s to carry/use knives even if it was just to peel and orange.
