Title Perceived risk, safety status, and job stress among injured and noninjured employees on offshore petroleum installations
Bibliographic information Summer 1995, Vol.26, No.2, p.87-97. 19 ref.
Abstract A survey of 915 employees from 5 companies on 8 offshore oil installations on the Norwegian Continental Shelf shows that the subjective evaluations of employees correspond quite well to the real risk. Employees who have suffered an injury themselves may feel more at risk, become more dissatisfied with safety and contingency measures, and experience more job stress than they did before the injury occurred.
