an understanding of the extent and magnitude of the hazards (e.g., chemical contamination);
the development of practical and technically effective qualitative or quantitative goals and decisions regarding safe exposure levels, coupled with methods to minimize or control potential exposures (e.g., remediation, engineered structures, restrictions on resource use); and,
the dissemination and discussion of information among scientists, regulators, politicians, and the public, regarding potential risks and available management strategies.
