Industry accident – UCL

The UCL university in London frequently breached safety protocol regarding its handling of radio active material.

My partner was not given safety equipment and they had contaminated the lab with radioactive material due to improper cleaning.

They was only alerted to it after walking past a static gigercounter, which picked up the contamination on their hands and clothes in the lab.

They had to evacuate the lab and remove all clothing before washing and getting recheck with a counter.

They should have lost their licence as it was their fault, but they convinced me to remain silent as they feared not getting their qualification from UCL if we reported it to the authorities. They covered it up and I feel terrible as they may have permanent damage plus so many countless students in the future might have the same happen to them. I have heard from others this happened before too to a female student.
