Risk Communication

Risk Communication is a science-based approach for communicating effectively in high concern, sensitive, high-stress, emotionally charged and/or controversial situations. The goals of this program of "assisted dialogue among stakeholders" are to enhance trust and credibility, increase knowledge and awareness, and resolve conflict. HPMC understands that many workplace safety and health issues can escalate into employee concerns and grievances if not communicated in a manner that instills trust in the workforce. We routinely provide guidance and recommendations for effective communication and can serve as a facilitator at meetings for groups who wish to achieve consensus on a controversial topic.
