Subject: Risk = Hazard + Outrage video

I’ve used Peter Sandman’s video (on the above subject) with my staff and with my hazardous waste classes. The response is uniformly good. I think we have seen a real change in the way our staff deal with their clients. They think about how they will be perceived as well as how technically accurate they are.

When we began talking about reducing the number of film badges we issue (because we have tons of data for certain groups showing no exposure above background), one of our techs said, “I bet people will think they are less well protected if we take their badges away. We'll have to deal with that up front.” Things have worked reasonably smoothly as a result. I recommend this video highly.
