Topic 2. Recommendations
- Recommendations Follow Conclusions
Many recommendations about actions that are needed at a site logically follow conclusions. For instance, if people are coming in contact with chemicals at a site in a way that could harm their health, a recommendation is needed to stop contact with the chemicals. If data are missing to evaluate whether chemicals are present at levels that could cause harm, then a recommendation should be made to gather that information.
