Industry Risk Communication Manual provides you ready access to current thinking and practice on environmental risk communication. This manual will allow you to think through risk communication problems and plan risk communication strategies. It also will provide you with examples and instant experience from over 30 experts who have found themselves in similar situations. Developed by one of the leading programs on risk communication, this book provides easy-to-follow guidelines, checklists, and examples for plant managers, public information specialists, technical staff, executives, and managers who need to deal with the public regarding how their company's business relates to environmental risk issues.
