A man from Hertfordshire is to sue his employers after they were found responsible for an accident at work in which he almost lost his sight.
Carl Woodbridge was pruning a cactus for his former employers Rentokil Initial UK Ltd when toxic sap squirted in Mr Woodbridge’s eyes causing damage to his cornea. In addition, he suffered burns to his body and face.
Following an inquiry into the incident, Rentokil Initial UK Ltd was found to have failed to provide adequate training to Mr Woodbridge under the Health and Safety Act. They were fined £12,000.
Milton Keynes Council Spokesman said this was an entirely preventable situation if the work had been properly planned and implemented. Accident claims of this nature are taken very seriously and Mr Woodbridge intends to seek compensation from his former employer for the injuries he sustained.
