Limitations[edit]

Lack of rigour in use of terminology here. A risk cannot "occur". Risk is an attribute of an event - only the event can occur. Risk is a metric describing the likelhood and potential consequences of an occurence of the event. As risk is the primary term of reference for the whole subject under discussion, it seems advisable not to misuse it. 212.159.59.5 (talk) 09:23, 19 September 2012 (UTC)

Also, in the introduction, the article makes a claim that "Widely used vocabulary for risk management is defined by ISO Guide 73, "Risk Management Vocabulary," with a footnote. First of all, ISO Guide 73 (2004 and 2009 versions) were not based on what was previously "widely used". 2nd, the referenced ISO Guide does not itself make such claim, (which would have been difficult for the 1st edition, and for many changes of the 2nd edition). So, the adjective "widely used" either needs a source, or is original research. Suggest changing the sentence to read that "It aims to encourage a mutual and consistent understanding of, and a coherent approach to, the description of activities relating to the management of risk, and the use of uniform risk management terminology in processes and frameworks dealing with the management of risk" or "that it is intended to be used by: those engaged in managing risks; those who are involved in activities of ISO and IEC; and developers of national or sector-specific standards, guides, procedures and codes of practice relating to the management of risk". If a source says that it actually is widely used, then perhaps the date when that fact became true (for the 2004/2009 publications) should be noted. Encouragement and intent are not the same as that which actually is. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 144.183.224.2 (talk) 18:30, 31 August 2015 (UTC)


Industrial Process link[edit]

The Wikipedia link for "Industrial Processes" within this article goes instead to "Individual Psychological Assessment". Please fix, thanks much. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 144.183.224.2 (talk) 18:07, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

ISO[edit]

What's the use of all these ISO references? Advertising? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 178.199.188.222 (talk) 22:03, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
