London College Fined Over AIDS Hazard

March 16, 2001

The Imperial College of Science in London was fined $29,400 recently for breaching safety regulations that could have endangered public safety with the risk of HIV infection. The college acknowledged the breakdown in safety rules last week, but it noted the risk of exposure was isolated to laboratory personnel. The college had manufactured the virus to be studied at its labs in the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. Court officials agreed that although the over all public safety risk was minimal, the possibility of exposure to the virus in an unsealable area was not acceptable.
