Daniel Fackelman v. Lac d'Amiante du Quebec

03-03-08 A-4636-05T1

We hold that a workers' compensation insurer, which
performed industrial hygiene studies for plaintiff's employer at
plaintiff's place of employment, had no duty to warn the
employees of workplace risks or educate them about the nature of
the risks or means to minimize risk, when there was no evidence
that the insurer negligently performed the studies or that the
insurer had assumed any duty to oversee workplace safety.
