Gefahr and Gefährdung

I was in a quality risk management workshop yesterday and these two terms cropped up quite a lot. But what is the difference? I did ask at the time but none of the German speakers present could come up with a reasonable explanation when to use one or the other, and that it was something a born German-speaker just "knew".

Can anyone come up with a decent explanation?

Re: Gefahr and Gefährdung

Gefahr - danger
Gefährdung - endangerment
