3 The Perception of Risk The way we react to risk is determined by the way we perceive it, indeed we have a fundamental need not only to be safe but also to feel safe. Our day to day evaluation of risk is often less than objective and many personal and sociological factors may come into play influenced by our cultural, educational and social-economical background. We may choose to turn a blind eye to some more obvious risk mitigation strategies whilst placing inappropriate confidence in others.

A significant factor in the evaluation of personal risk is the extent to which one has control over the precise circumstances, particularly whether engagement in an activity is voluntary or enforced, necessary or accidental [6]. Our right to choose whether or not we do something has a direct impact on how we perceive the risk associated with it and, in turn, its acceptability. Similarly we may regard a hazard which we consider to be a necessary evil differently compared with one arising as a result of incompetence or maliciousness.
