Risk Perception in Academic Labs
Due to potential liability and negative impact on an institution's reputation, details about injury numbers and types are most often not released by universities and colleges. Our study demonstrates that researchers in academia underestimate their risk and their safety behavior strongly correlates with how they view their risk. Facts influencing risk perception as they pertain to the research environment and the impact of safety culture on how researchers view their risk will be discussed.
