||Risk perception and safety on offshore petroleum platforms - Part II: Perceived risk, job stress and accidents
||May 1992, Vol.15, No.1, p.53-68. 41 ref.
||Part II of a survey among petroleum personnel on the Norwegian Continental Shelf drew respondents from 5 companies and 8 installations with a response rate of 92% (n=915). Respondents were asked to evaluate potential sources of risk, job stress factors, physical working conditions, and safety and contingency factors. Results show that risk perception and job stress contribute considerably to the frequency of injuries and human errors and that good safety and contingency conditions are particularly important in risk perception. Physical working conditions were among the factors causing an increase in perceived lack of safety and in strain. Implications of the results are discussed.
