Lectures on risk usually focuses on one specific kind of risk, depending on the specialty of the lecturer or the organizer. As a result, audience tend to understand risk in a specific manner and they do not know other ways of dealing with risk. In reality, not only ways, but also terminology to assess and manage risks are different between disciplines, such as food, chemical, mechanical, natural disaster, and business. I tried to have a lecture on cross-cutting risk issues, focusing on the common and different terminology and methods of risk assessment and management. I took mechanical, natural disaster, food, and chemical field as representative areas of risk analysis.
