This essay will obtain and discuss the legal obligations and regulations of the company, and whether the company adhered to these regulations or where the company did not meet set health and safety (H&S) guidelines. For the remainder of this essay the injured party will be referred to as "the member" or the "plaintiff" (the person making the claim), the employee who poorly stacked the boxes will be referred to as "the employee" and the leisure company will be referred to as "the company".
