Neil Kelly, a man of 52 years of age, could not work for more than two months following an accident at work in which a substance with a high content of sulphuric acid came into contact with his body.
Mr Kelly was using a highly-concentrated sink unblocker while working at a residential property and was not provided with suitable clothing, supervision or training to use the material safely.
As a result, the liquid burned through his paper overalls and onto his skin and his employer - City Response, a firm based in the Greater Manchester town of Oldham - has subsequently admitted breaching the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002.
Therefore, the worker could decide to pursue a claim for personal injury damages for both his pain and suffering and loss of earnings.
