Mr P works in a very busy professional kitchen. His employers provide his uniform which includes a long sleeved chef’s tunic. On this particular day however the uniform was changed to a short sleeved one. Part way through his shift Mr P was reminded in the most painful way why the tunics should be long sleeved.

This happened when his bare elbow touched a very hot oven door whilst he was removing something from inside it. This caused a nasty burn.

We put his claim to his employer, pointing out that long sleeves are needed to protect against this very situation. Had Mr P been wearing long sleeves he would not have been injured. They have accepted this, and Mr P will now be compensated for his injury and other losses.
