R v The Board of Trustees of the Science Museum [1994] IRLR 25 CA

Reports relating to this case:

  • Risk involves no actual danger

    Date:
    1 May 1993

    "Risk" is interpreted in a wider sense to convey the possibility of danger, in R v The Board of Trustees of the Science Museum. The Court of Appeal thus upholds the decision of the Crown Court, and notes that a more restrictive definition of "actual danger" would result in "substantial emasculation" of a central part of the HSW Act.
