||A questionnaire survey of 622 workers on six oil and gas platforms in the United Kingdom offshore continental shelf showed that these workers generally felt safe living and working offshore and that their perceptions of risk and safety appeared to be reasonably accurate. Workers expressed most concern about explosion hazards, the installation being hit by a vessel, weather conditions, falling objects and slipping. Organizational factors (management commitment to safety, job satisfaction, safety versus production) had the greatest direct effect on workers' perception of risk and their satisfaction with safety measures. Recommendations regarding risk communication and safety management are put forward.
