Full text not available from this repository.


Addresses the workplace issues posed by HIV/AIDS within the hotel and catering industry. In particular, examines the theoretical risks which may be peculiar to organizations in this industrial sector. Suggests that the “objective” risk assessment provided by “experts” is not necessarily accepted nor understood by all employees. Develops a model of risk assessment which takes account of perceived risk, reflecting subjective and organizational influences to provide an adequate understanding of likely employee responses. Uses the model to interpret data from a small survey of hotel and catering management trainees and uses the results to point to areas of further research and to matters which merit further discussion by hotel and catering employers.
