Pursuant to s.2(3)(b) of the Occupiers' Liability Act 1957, an occupier may expect that a skilled person (such as an electrician) in the exercise of his work will appreciate and guard against any special risks ordinarily incidental to that work, so far as the occupier leaves that person free to do so. Here, James was warned to confirm the electrical supply was switched off before conducting any work. Whether he did or did not check, he was left free to do so. This principle is supported by the case of Roles v Nathan [1963] 1 WLR 1117. 


Key Point: Under the Occupiers' Liability Act 1957, skilled persons are expected to guard against risks inherent in their work. An occupier may rely on this expectation to discharge their duty of care.
