RISK: Health, Safety & Environment


Frances M. Lynn


It is important to solicit public opinions before making decisions about Risk, but this is seen as only a first step. The author observes that it is also important that the public be involved in defining the problem, identifying needed information, interpreting information, and choosing among the options for action.
