This particular survey focuses on the scientific area of Cindinique. The philosophy of this modern science imposed the examination of all the considered risks in a form of a system which could make feasible the study of the risks dialectical relations. The present survey does not intend to demonstrate efficient ways of facing these problems but it generously offers the necessary elements so as action could be taken. Data was selected after personal interviews which were based on a questionnaire. Afterwards, a certain method of Data Analysis which is called Factor Analysis of Correspondences helped us to distinguish groups of answers according to the different opinions expressed, while another one known as Automatic Hierarchical Classification helped us to detect both the characteristic elements of each group and those ones that led to the formation of different groups.
