Now that "the dust has settled" on the Goldscheider v Royal Opera House decision in the Court of Appeal in May, I am pleased to have this article published in Apil's PI Focus.  In it I consider the implications of the case outside noise induced hearing loss (NIHL) cases, and in particular the inferences as to causation it is open to a court to draw, and which arguably the court should draw, when an employer has failed to assess and act against risk of injury to his/her/its workers.
