Reduce risk and improve safety
Assessing candidates for safety and integrity produces results
Safety incidents, LTIs, shrinkage and fraud: it continues to cost
Chances are, you already have numerous measures in place to promote safety and reduce risk across your organisation. Most employers offer extensive training, policies and procedures, safety equipment and signage, surveillance and reporting measures, security protocols and more.
However, despite all of this, we’re still bearing the costs associated with safety incidents and counterproductive work behaviours such as shrinkage, absenteeism, fraud and dishonesty.
80% of workplace safety incidents involve human error
OHS expenditure directed at creating a safer environment don’t address human factors such as attitudes and behaviours, which lead to the majority of incidents.
Workplace safety incidents have hidden costs
The indirect costs of industrial accidents are approximately 4 times the direct workers’ compensation costs. These include administrative time, training, overtime, lost productivity, and property repair and replacement.
Over 50% of fraudulent acts are committed by your employees
According to research, companies lose nearly 5% of revenue each year to employee and executive fraud such as asset misappropriation, corruption, and financial statement fraud.
Counterproductive behaviour impacts your bottom line
We know that behaviours such as unwarranted personal leave, shrinkage, theft and fraud cost our business. But have you also considered the cost of seemingly benign behaviours such as cyber-loafing, tardiness and leaving early?
Identifying safer and more reliable people can be simple
Safety: Find out who will behave more safely before you hire them
Extensive research shows that despite all of the money, time and effort we put into ensuring a safe workplace, some people are just more likely to take risks and indulge in unsafe behaviour. They’re the kind of people who might think that planking is fun and worth the risk, or that safety is someone else’s responsibility.
The good news is that it’s possible to identify these people before you hire them and give yourself a head start by employing people who you know will take safety seriously.
Integrity & reliability: Find out who will behave more reliably before you hire them
Just like attitudes towards safety, some people have more lenient attitudes and beliefs about counterproductive behaviours such as theft, dishonesty and absenteeism. They’re the kind of people who might think it’s okay to lie about taking a sick day, or that taking company property is acceptable and normal.
Again, there’s good news: you can identify who is more likely to have stricter attitudes towards these factors and give yourself the upper hand by hiring people you know will be more reliable.
