The article offers information on the definition of "risk" as developed by risk-communications expert Peter Sandman. According to Sandman, the definition incorporates not only the likelihood of harm (hazard), but also the degree to which people are upset (outrage). It is stated that sometimes the hazard is high and outrage is low and sometimes the hazard is low but outrage is high. Also presented are Sandman's views on risk and outrage management.
