Question 501 October 2006

Off-site Corporate events - duty of care.

Does any member have experience of staff being injured during a function (e.g. party) held off the premises?

At a recent official party, a member of staff was quite seriously hurt, in spite of the event being well organized with a Risk Assessment in place and advice on transport, alcohol etc circulated before hand. I am particularly concerned about the responsibility aspect and concerned about a claim being made.

Memberís thoughts and experience gratefully received.
