To Live is to Risk.

  • What is risk?


  • We face risks every day.


  • We make risk decisions based on our knowledge.


  • We decide what is safe to do or not to do.


  • We base our daily risk decisions on:

    • Personal experiences.
    • Observations of others.
    • What we are told, factual or not.
    • The degree of risk we perceive.
    • What we must do to live.
  • Only we can make a decision as to what we think is safe and what we are willing to do. Working with radioactive materials is one of the activities we can decide to accept as a reasonable risk in order to carry out our research.
