A risk comparison for global decision maker : an epidemiological study

Abstract : The aim of this paper is to give an epidemiological point of view to a risk comparison problem. The problem is to give insights on risks levels of the technological man-made activities. The issue of the problem is to balance the level of requirements of regulations by their risk level to people. The idea is to compare the technological risks (fixed installations, hazardous goods transportation) to other man-made activities (at work, or during transportation by road, rail, air) in a broader context of the risk of current life activities (domestic, natural hazards, diseases). An epidemiological comparison approach has been used for this study to give some lights to the issue to global decision makers. These kind of figures are often used by various stakeholders when debating costs and benefits of risk control measures or laws versus risk acceptability's issues.
