Infection risk for bird flu workers

27th April 2009

A BBC Freedom of Information request has shown there were two incidents at a government laboratory where workers could have caught the bird flu virus.

The accidents - reported under the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR) - occurred at the Veterinary Laboratories Agency (VLA) in Surrey. The VLA's chief executive Peter Boriello said: "A key part of this is working with the HSE to ensure that lessons are learned from RIDDOR reportable incidents."
