Decommissioning a nuclear facility requires a multitude of decisions that may have wide ranging effects. One critical aspect to consider in making decisions is the risk of potential adverse impacts on the facility workforce, the public, and the ecosystem. According to the American Association of Engineering Societies, risk analysis may be considered to include three essential modules: assessment, management, and communication. These modules are interrelated, as shown in Figure 7.1 (AAES 1998).
