The paper discusses the effect of locus of control on preventability of disaster. The survey included 400 respondents. The questionnaire contained items concerning locus questionnaire, subjective probability of disaster, controllability of disasters and willingness to prevent them. A strong effect of locus was confirmed. People with an internal locus see damage from natural hazards as more preventable than those with an external locus and are more likely to take preventative action. The results are discussed in terms of subjective probability and controllability of risk.
