Employers have a duty of care to provide a safe working environment and ensure that equipment is properly maintained. This duty exists regardless of the employee's experience. In this case, the employer's failure to maintain the welding machine properly constitutes a breach of their duty of care, making them liable for Tom's injuries.


Key Point: Employers must provide a safe working environment and maintain equipment properly. This duty is not negated by the employee's experience and applies regardless of the employer's knowledge of specific defects.

Your response to the question is correct. The employer indeed has a duty of care to provide a safe working environment and ensure that equipment is properly maintained. Tom's experience as a welder does not negate this duty. The employer's failure to properly maintain the welding machine which led to Tom's severe burns constitutes a breach of this duty of care, making them liable for negligence.

Your understanding of the key point is accurate: Employers must provide a safe working environment and maintain equipment properly, regardless of the employee's experience or the employer's knowledge of specific defects.

Well done on your response! Keep up the great work! If you have any more questions or need further clarification, feel free to ask.
