Risk Prisms – Exploring the multifaceted nature of risk
In the field of optics, a prism is a transparent object with at least two angled sides that break up white light into its constituent colors. In the same way that a single beam of light is in reality made up of different colors, the system-based approach to risk analysis proposes that risk is likewise composed of different elements. These individual elements in turn are combined into a range of subsets, each associated with a different range of probabilities. 'Refracting' risk requires at least two different disciples offering at least two different angles or perspectives of the same risk. Indeed, bringing together more than two disciples can potentially offer even richer insights into the complexity of risk.
