Abstract : A basic approach to risk assessment/risk management applied to operational and emergency response scenarios is discussed. Examples highlighting problems and successes in implementing the model are also presented. Applications vary from conditions where the hazardous material of interest is an Air Force unique material and involves a limited Air Force population at risk, to conditions where potential exposures involve the public. Also discussed is Air Force participation in the risk assessment/risk management process for hazardous materials that are not unique to the Air Force. A formal policy framework for implementing the risk assessment/risk management model to ensure Air Force employees and the public are protected to an acceptable risk level is proposed
