This paper reports upon the findings of pilot work research being carried out with the collaboration of a large employer in the UK construction sector. The term ‘grey data’ is introduced and deined and a pilot grey data review relating to occupational injury risks is described. The results are used as the basis for a preliminary investigation into the utility of grey data in management decision-making relating to occupational risks. Nine factors are identifed as important to the managers, these factors falling into two groups, viz. role considerations and subject considerations. It is recommended that future research might investigate the relative importance of these two groups of factors to managers, specifcally in relation to occupational risk decision-making.
