Fitzgerald, Robert W.
People live in the presence of hazards every day. Whether they recognize these hazards or not is a result of their behavioral tendencies and their level of acquired knowledge. Many true hazards go unnoticed, while other situations are falsely labeled hazardous. It should not be assumed however, that the average person cannot form a correct view of hazard within the space he occupies. This report will attempt to define hazards, and to determine how different people classify the hazards around them.
