A source that could, if not under control, give rise to exposure sufficient to cause a severe deterministic health effect (one for which generally a threshold of dose exists above which the severity of the effect is greater for a higher dose, and that is fatal or life threatening or results in a permanent injury that decreases the quality of life).
