CARBONELL SIAM, Ana Teresa; TORRES VALLE, Antonio; NUNEZ VALDIVIE, Yakelín  and  ARANZOLA ACEA, Ángela María. Analysis of the biological occupational risk perception through a dedicated informatics system. Rev Cubana Farm [online]. 2013, vol.47, n.3, pp.324-338. ISSN 0034-7515.

Introduction: the unavailability and the inadequate flexibility of the risk perception analysis tools hinder their general use in different contexts. Objective: to design a flexible software system to evaluate the flexibility of risk perception and to prove its capacity in various case studies. Methods: the basic algorithm of the RISKPERCEP code was created on the basis of the evaluation method of the occupational perception risk (EPRO). Result: the ORPE method through the RISKPERCEP software was applied in different scenarios with associated biological hazards, for example, in a manufacturing company of biologicals, a blood bank or to the work of the surveillance and vector control units. Conclusion: the RISKPERCEP software facilitates the risk perception analysis and allows the extension of such method to different scenarios with biological hazards.

Keywords : risk; risk perception; human errors; risk perception factors; risk perception evaluation.
