Overview of Module

This is the last regular instructional module. It has two topics from risk management: Public Involvement and Risk Communications. While these are often separated from risk assessment in theory, in practice they are often needed by the risk assessors. Ecological risks and radiation risks are slightly beyond the scope of the course, but often arise, so we treat them here. Workplace health will discuss some principles that might benefit workers involved in risk assessment field work. Lastly we work through a RISC problem and get a Monte Carlo analysis output and talk a little about plant uptake.
