Abstract

This study presents a bibliometric analysis of the existing literature on risk perception in the construction industry. The aims are to discover patterns, significant topics, and the progression of research on risk perception. The study includes academic publications, such as journal articles, conference papers, and book chapters. The data was acquired from articles indexed on Scopus. VOSviewer was utilized to construct a co-occurrence network using the bibliographic data acquired, and a Sankey diagram was formed to investigate publication trends. Four major study clusters were found, encompassing risk management, safety, construction workers, and prevention actions, all within the context of risk perception in construction research. The current rising research topics related to risk perception in construction are occupational and project safety, construction workers, and human resources. The outcomes of this study can provide comprehension of risk perception in construction and research direction by emphasizing the importance of integrating management, safety, workers, and prevention action perspectives while offering new areas for further exploration regarding risk perception in the construction industry.
