Abstract

The importance of risk perception in culturally diverse organizations is neither widely acknowledged nor adequately conceptualized. The aim of this article is to examine the issues associated with the risk perception safety behavior of employees. Through the literature, this article delineates the potential major risk perception behavior of multi-ethnic group of employees within organizations and then offers a model by linking a number of organizational and human factors with theories linked to organizational behavior, cultural intelligence and emotional intelligence to identify the risk perception safety behavior asymmetries. The article provides an insight into the conjoint factors that contribute to risk perception behavior from a multi-theoretical perspective. Several propositions are derived from the model and the implications are discussed.
