Risk level?

How is it possible to define a risk level?

To estimate a risk level, two factors are traditionally associated: the hazardness and the level and duration of exposure to the hazardous agent. Then the product of both factors represents the evaluation of the risk level of the situation. But how to reduce a risk level?


Risk level estimation.

The hazardness is relative to the degree of health damage following an inhalation or of a damage level following an explosion. It is expressed in terms of consequences seriousness and of occurrence probability .

The type of nanomaterial, its shape (powder, liquid,…), the manipulated quantity and the duration to an atmosphere containing nanoparticles have an influence in the risk estimation.
