Styrene Exposure and Perceptions of Risk in the Fibreglass Boat Building Industry: A Community-Based Comparison
This project aimed to determine if there are differences in risk perception between boat building plant workers, employers, health personnel, stakeholders, and policymakers. It also aimed to determine the factors affecting risk perception among these four target groups, to assess the extent to which predetermined factors can account for variance in risk perception, and to determine if risk perception is a direct or moderator variable for predicting behavioural intentions.
