The Organization for Awareness of
Hazardous Technology Risks
Symmetric Information: The Key to Understanding Your Risk.
We are an independent research collective focused on community safety, environmental health, and the efficacy of safety-critical protections.
We specialize in analyzing and communicating the risks that hazardous production, transportation, and storage technologies pose to people and the environment.
HazTechRisk.Org actively engages with the community through research and communication. Understanding the risks imposed by neighboring hazardous technologies should not be shrouded by impenetrable jargon and/or analytics.
