Warnings are one of several hazard control methods used to protect employees and property against danger and loss. This article surveys a set of factors known to influence the effectiveness of workplace warnings. The description of empirical research is organized around a communication–human information processing (C–HIP) model. The model begins with a source entity attempting to relay a warning message through one or more media/sensory channels to one or more receivers. At the receiver…

TLDR
This chapter primarily focuses on a model that gives a general description of how consumer product warnings may be processed, and similar principles apply to signs and other kinds of warnings for environmental and facility hazards.
Warning! A Comprehensive Model of the Effects of Digital Information Security Warning Messages
TLDR
This research combines the communication-human information processing (C-HIP) model with protection motivation theory (PMT) to assess how warning message content affects adherence especially when users pay attention to the content of the warning message.
A Comprehensive Model of the Effects of Digital Information Security Warning Messages Research-in-progress
TLDR
This research combines the communication-human information processing (C-HIP) model with protection motivation theory (PMT) to assess how warning message content affects adherence especially when users pay attention to the content of the warning message.

TLDR
A model that combines human information processing with communication theory is described: the Communication-Human Information Processing (C-HIP) model, which can be used to assess warning utility.
CURRENT TRENDS IN RISK COMMUNICATION THEORY AND PRACTICE
The large and growing area of risk communication research and practice has sprung from the need of a better understanding of what information people actually require and want in circumstances of
Storms, Fires, and Bombs: Analyzing the Impact of Warning Message and Receiver Characteristics on Risk Perception in Different Hazards
TLDR
The findings point toward differences in the processing of warning messages yet underline the importance of hazard type, as well as characteristics of the recipient.
How does our perception of risk influence decision-making? Implications for the design of risk information
Perceptions of risk are an inherent part of the decision-making process. What is more, risk perception can be understood as an individual's assessment of risk, and the adequacy of any risk assessment
Adapting Security Warnings to Counter Online Disinformation
TLDR
This work adapts methods and results from the information security warning literature in order to design and evaluate effective disinformation warnings, and provides evidence that disinformation warnings can -- when designed well -- help users identify and avoid disinformation.
An Examination of Auditory Warnings and Their Effects on a Computer User's Response to Error Messages.
TLDR
There is a strong argument for the effectiveness of auditory warnings in a typical computing environment, and how they might facilitate software designers and industrial designers in their efforts to continually improve the efficiency and clarity of their products and ultimately improve the user experience is discussed.

TLDR
Whether young children, the elderly, and non-native English speakers perceive similar connoted hazard levels from the terms as undergraduates and published guidelines is determined and a list of potential signal words that probably would be understandable to members of special populations is developed.
