Shackleton v. M-I Drilling Fluids UK Limited [2016] CSOH 82

This is a tripper case precipitated by a chipped concrete floor in the  workplace. The leading edge of the trip is stated in the report to be approximately one eighth of an inch. Unsurprisingly the court held that this configuration did not engage Regulation 12 of the Workplace (Health, Safety & Welfare) Regulations 1992, and the leading edge on the floor constituted neither an obstruction nor a hazard which rendered the floor unsuitable. Absolvitor was granted.
