Abstract

The experiences, knowledge and methodologies developed for assessing radiation risks to man and his environment are now applied in a broader context to prevent, reduce and manage risks linked to numerous human industrial activities. The obvious need to compare such risks and the increasing concern of the responsible authorities for the environment and for the safety and well-being of the general population and industrial workers, has urged the scientific community to develop methods for risk management based upon a comparative approach. The purpose of this seminar was a multi-disciplinary discussion of the progress made in this field with a view to defining the applications, perspectives and limitations of risk assessment and risk management.
