    Abstract

    The use of protective clothing by employees is often required for their personal safety. Willingness to use protective clothing, however, is not consistent across individuals, being affected by a myriad of factors including one's perception of risk and need for sensation. Suggestions for strategies to increase use of protective clothing based on one's level of need for sensation are presented.
