Public lecture will look at ways to understand risk

Chair of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) Judith Hackitt CBE will give a public lecture on 12 November about helping society to better understand risk.

The lecture, Managing risk, delivering benefits, the key to sustainable solutions, is part of the University's Research in the World Lecture series.

It will cover the challenges we face in meeting the expectations of a society that wants solutions and benefits but also fears the unknown in new developments such as fracking and Genetic Modification (GM).

The lecture will discuss what we need to do to help society better understand risk and also the importance of research in building trust, and confidence in new and existing technologies.

Judith Hackitt was appointed as Chair of the Health and Safety Executive in October 2007. She is President of IChemE and a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering.

This lecture takes place on 12 November at 18.15 in building 5 West (Pharmacy & Pharmacology) room 2.1.
