I felt that this course was biased to encourage people completing it (workers) to not believe that NORM and TENORM are an important hazard in the work place. The last sections about comparative risk downplay the health effects that exposure can have. This could lead to workers not practicing safe working habits if they do not view the contaminant as a real risk. Another section could be added at the end to highlight safe work practices that should followed to keep the rem dosages low.
