Risk Analysis Discussion Group

The Risk Analysis Discussion Group (RADG) is focused on risk analysis, broadly defined to include risk assessment, risk characterization, risk communication, risk management, and policy relating to risk. RADG is designed for professionals in risk analysis, but people with a nonprofessional interest in these topics are welcome to join and participate, as long as their contributions are relevant. If you have already decided to join, read on. If not, click on the Preview tab above for more information about the list, including a link to a PDF with a sample of postings. Although the Society for Risk Analysis (https://sra.org) is not a sponsor of RADG, the interests of the members overlap.

The group operates by email through GNU Mailman 3.3, currently hosted by mailmanlists.net.
