dc.description.abstract This study confirms the self-defensive attribution hypothesis on causal atrributions of accidents in Ghana's work environment. In this investigation, Ghanaian industrial workers and their supervisors assigned causailty to industrial accidents, and their responses were compared. The results showed that the victims attributed their accidents to external causes to a greater extent than did the supervisors.This finding reflects the tendency toward self-protective bias, whereby people tend to project blame onto external circumstance. en_US
