Risk Is Perceived Differently By Each Individual

Submitted by • October 18, 2018

Risk is perceived differently by each individual. Some workers may consider a certain level of risk to be acceptable, while other workers would consider that level of risk to be unacceptable. OSHA evaluates residual risk during the rulemaking process and uses what they define as an acceptable risk level in developing a standard. Discuss to what extent you believe individual risk perception should be used in establishing controls at individual workplaces. Do you believe OSHA’s definition of an acceptable risk is adequate, or should each location develop its own acceptable level of risk? Explain your answer.
