The owner of a Sudbury cafe will appear in court on Monday charged with nine breaches of health and safety regulations.

Halit Ozer, director of Liteball Ltd which owns Huffers Cafeteria in King Street, attended Bury St Edmunds Magistrates’ Court on Friday.

The 51-year is accused of failing to notify the relevant authorities that employee Chelsea Stafford suffered a chemical eye injury in September 2012, and failing to take efforts to avoid risks associated with using washing liquid containing sodium hydroxide.

Ozer is also charged with failing to train staff on the substance’s risks, failing to carry out risk assessments and control employee’s exposure to the chemical.

Other charges relate to having out-of-date medical supplies. The case has been brought by Babergh District Council.

Ozer is yet to enter a plea in relation to the charges.
