Applied Safety + Ergonomics

Managing Consultant Julia Diebol is currently researching perceptions of hazard and exposure information when risk is uncertain with the University of Michigan School of Public Health.  Her focus has been on community perceptions of risk and satisfaction with information in situations of environmental contamination.

Ms. Diebol has used and presented on the “mental models” method, a structured method used to compare mental conceptualizations of risk between laypeople and technical experts. Ms. Diebol’s additional experience assessing the regulatory compliance of hundreds of hazard communications over a number of time periods puts has put her in an excellent position to consult and present on issues such as:

  • How people process information about chemical risks
  • How regulatory frameworks guide the hazard and risk communication process
  • How manufacturers, governments, and scientists can better communicate with laypeople about risks
