Work Safety Assessment

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.

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 Onetest 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.

Individuals completing the Onetest 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.
