This will be a full day, frank, and interactive discussion on risk communication, risk tolerance, and risk perception for rare but serious events. We will consider the impacts of these three factors on our approach to geohazard problems, both before and after high-profile events occur. The discussion will be led by a multi-disciplinary group of experts, some whom will be drawn from outside the normal geohazards community, and will be anchored around some common ground, such as linear transportation and energy infrastructure (e.g. railways and pipelines) and high-reliability scenarios (such as nuclear waste repositories). The exchange of context and ideas amongst the participants and with the other stakeholders should present an excellent opportunity for professional development and provide an appreciation for some critical aspects of the management of geohazards.

Objectives:

  1. Explore risk communication, risk tolerance, and risk perception for serious geohazard events from alternative perspectives, e.g. stakeholders, elements at risk, experts from other disciplines;
  2. Develop an appreciation for the esoteric issues arising from the outcome of a risk assessment: how the risks are perceived by, tolerated by, and communicated to various stakeholders, especially after the occurrence of a serious geohazard event, which had previously been considered and tolerated or accepted – by someone other than the public;
  3. Create an atmosphere of two-way learning between the experts from other disciplines and the geohazard specialists, so that the workshop is equally valuable to both groups
