The importance of Person-Organisation Fit in a cross-cultural environment is widely acknowledged in the extant literature. In high risk industries, where tasks are performed in multi-ethnic and cross-cultural environments, risks can be varied and homogeneous, despite the nature of the organisation. The risk assessment procedure begins with determining the person- organisation fit, and in the case of incident or accident, risk identification followed by risk analysis. The aim of this paper is to examine the issues associated with risk management and the person-organisation fit in a cross-cultural environment in high risk organisations. Through evidence from past literature, this paper delineates the major person-organisation fit and risk issues within high risk organisations and then draws out a model by linking a number of organisational and human factors, organisational behaviour, cultural intelligence, and emotional intelligence themes for extenuating risk in cross-cultural work settings. The paper provides an insight to the question of the relationship of risk perception and person-organisation fit with the aim of providing effective risk management outcomes. It is hoped this paper contributes to the exegesis of appropriate person-organisation fit and risk-evaluation methods from a multi-theoretical perspective, while providing a contribution to professional practice methodologies.
