The authors developed and tested a model linking subjective risk perceptions to both turnover intentions and employees' willingness to participate in health and safety programs. On the basis of data from 130 employees of a manufacturing firm, the model was supported. Risk perceptions were predicted by employees' accident history and perceptions of others' commitment to health and safety. In turn, risk perceptions predicted both turnover intentions and willingness to participate. These effects emerged after controlling for monomethod bias.
