Work Safety Assessment

recruit risk-adverse people, and manage current safety attitudes more effectively

Psychological research indicates that an individual’s attitudes and beliefs toward risk taking behaviour, personal responsibility for safety, stress management, drugs and violence are closely related to their likelihood of suffering a workplace injury or accident. Specifically, some individuals, by virtue of their attitudes and beliefs, are inherently more likely to take risks and ignore safety procedures and safety training. Enter the Safety Test.

Identify individuals who are inherently more likely to take risks and ignore safety procedures and training using this psychometric test.

Once an organisation has managed and controlled environmental risks, the next step is to screen out high risk individuals before they have a chance to injure themselves or others – irrespective of the environment – and manage existing high risk workers effectively.

Organisations that do this effectively can significantly:

  • Reduce lost time injuries
  • Lower workers' compensation costs
  • Reduce sick days
  • Reduce the risk of personal liability for directors and senior managers

The Revelian Work Safety Assessment measures overall safety attitudes and beliefs across five key safety risk sub-factors that predict actual safety behaviour – Safety Control, Risk Aversion, Stress Management, Drug Aversion and Attitudes Towards Violence.  A short form of the assessment that measures Safety Control, Risk Aversion and Stress Management is available if you choose to test now via our Express system.

Individuals completing the Revelian Work Safety Assessment indicate the extent to which they agree or disagree with a variety of statements regarding beliefs and attitudes about themselves, about others and about the environment.

This assessment also includes questions that assess the extent to which applicants may be distorting or faking their responses to appear more positive or safer than they really are. Based on their responses, an overall safety score is generated for each person, which is then compared to their relevant normative groups to assist in identifying those who are inherently high risk.

Recruitment use: Screen all applicants to identify degree of safety risk.

Development use: Assess existing workers to identify any individual safety development needs and tailor development programs.

This test is suitable for roles where safety is a key issue. Relevant to all industries but particularly those with a specific focus on safety such as mining, manufacturing, construction and heavy industry.
