How people perceive and respond to risk is an important determinant of safety outcomes. Risk compensation is the controversial notion that people take more risks when given safety equipment or interventions. The conditions under which risk compensation may occur will be assessed in a complement of studies, potentially focusing on pilots or other aviation personnel, and using a range of methods as appropriate (simulator, survey, database analysis).
