In this study Greek, French and Dutch residents of a hazardous chemical complex were confronted with a simulated warning scenario for an industrial accident and intended functional and dysfunctional behaviours were measured. Intended functional behaviours were poorly predicted by our model, while dysfunctional behavioural intentions could be predicted rather well. Consequences for hazard communication in the European Community are discussed.
