Extra Hazardous Activities and Responsibility for Independent Contractors (March 2005, William Norris QC)

Extra Hazardous Activities and Responsibility for Independent Contractors (March 2005, William Norris QC)


CategoryArticlesDate

This article considers whether and, if so, to what extent a principal may be held liable for the negligence of an independent contractor in relation to what has been called “extra hazardous activities”.

Particularly, I shall consider

  • whether English Courts should still recognise “extra hazardous activities” as a special category in respect of which the principal cannot avoid or delegate responsibility, and
  • if so, the kind of activities which might (or might not) be characterised as “extra hazardous” at the present time.
