    R v The Board of Trustees of the Science Museum [1994] IRLR 25 CA (0 other reports)

"Risk" is interpreted in a wider sense to convey the possibility of danger, in R v The Board of Trustees of the Science Museum (Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, Royal Courts of Justice, 9 March 1993, No.90/5399/W4). 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.
