The individual’s prevention of accidents and crises in everyday life: Sense-making of risk and individual motivation
Mid Sweden University, Faculty of Human Sciences, Department of Social Sciences. (Risk and Crisis Research Center, RCR)
2011 (English)Conference paper, Published paper (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this paper is to discuss the theoretical relationship between sense-making of risk (SMR) and motivation types when it comes to the understanding of individual’s prevention of accidents and crises in everyday life. Contributions to the research area are discussed, as well as limitations of the chosen concepts. The usefulness when it comes to empirically investigating the individual’s motive forces to prevent accidents and cries in everyday life are discussed. This theoretically pre-study will be used in a forthcoming project on how sense-making of risk and individual motivation can be used to explain the individual’s motive force to prevent accidents and crises in everyday life.
