Risk Assessments

The team identified potential technical, resource, safety, environmental, and societal risks. For each risk, we identified the cause and effect, the likelihood, and the severity. From the likelihood and severity, we calculated an importance score in order to identify the risks that are most important to minimize or mitigate, and we assigned specific mitigation actions to certain team members. The document is updated periodically with new risks or changes to previous risks.
