However, non-radiological risks typical for hospitals (biological, infectious) play an almost as important role in the overall perception of job-related risks. -There is a statistically significant link between stress and job satisfaction. -The higher is the general knowledge about ionizing radiation, the less are the risks of ionizing radiation perceived as high.",

N2 - Risk perception has been extensively studied by various "barometers", particularly in Belgium. However, risk perception of peole who are exposed professionally has been very seldom addressed in the literature. This work investigates risk perception and safety behaviour among the medical staff (doctors, nurses, technicians, hospital physicists) exposed to ionising radiation in several major hospitals in Belgium.
