Title Hazardous substances: an information challenge
Original title Gefahrstoffe als Wissensanforderung [in German]
Bibliographic information 1988, Vol.32, No.3, p.118-127. Illus. 21 ref.
Abstract Perception of danger and risk posed by substances encountered in a nuclear power plant was determined by questionnaires and interviews. Even though safety organisation in the plant was found to be of a high level, most of the workers rely on their sensory ability to recognise harmful and dangerous substances rather than on the information they would obtain on these substances by reading warning notices.
