The current version of the OLA or Occupier’s Liability Act which has been in force since 05-01-04 states that an occupier or owner:
“ . . . of a premises owes a duty to take such care as in all the circumstances of the case is reasonable to see that each person entering on the premises and the property brought on the premises by that person are reasonably safe while on the premises.”
In other words, the prevention of slip or trip and fall accidents is the owner’s or person in charge’s responsibility.
