Correlation between Risk Perception and Decision Making in Coal Mine Based on ERP Testing Technology

Xiaodong Pei


Safety production in coal mine is often faced with great pressure. Security risks often lead to severe life and property loss, which greatly influence economic development and social stability. Risk perception is created on the basis of objective risk. Based on the ERP Technology, the paper regards risks in the coal mine as objective risks and tests the risk perception and risk-based decisions of the subjects. The results show that the main effect of the risk levels is significant, and the interaction of the risk level and the electrode point is not significant. High-risk scenario will lead to more negative emotions and greater fluctuations. Under high-risk conditions, the response time of consistent decisions is shorter than that of inconsistent ones. By analyzing the accuracy rate of the reaction, it is found that the accuracy rate in high-risk scenario is higher than that of the low-risk one. Compared with behavioral test, ERP testing is a more sensitive and effective test method in risk perception process.
