On June 17,1993, the Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Institute (EOHSI) hosted an invitational conference at Rutgers University (New Brunswick, NJ) that focused on preventing misconduct in risk science. After a brief presentation of EOHSI's empirical surveys and focus group studies, panelists discussed the use of educational programs, auditing and other methods to reduce misconduct. The symposium had 31 registrants, including journal editors, university educators, government and industry officials, national and regional heads of professional organizations in risk assessment and risk management, and experts on ethical issues. They were trained in a wide variety of disciplines that bear directly on risk analysis, such as biology, chemistry, economics, epidemiology, health education, industrial hygiene, law, medicine, statistics, and toxicology. The majority have substantial experience in risk analysis.
