Mitigate and manage safety risk
Measure safety attitudes and behaviour
Assess the beliefs and attitudes an individual has toward safety at work.
Predict likelihood of accident or injury
Identify propensity to work safely, avoid risk and take responsibility for safety outcomes.
46 or 75 questions—untimed
Depending on the version, candidates will be asked to complete either 46 (short version) or 75 (long version) questions. It will take approximately 10 minutes to complete.
Candidates can take the test wherever they are on a digital device of their choosing.
When you know an individual’s propensity for safe working, you’re better equipped to make more informed hiring decisions and to manage risk-taking employees more effectively.
Some people are more prone than others to taking risks and disregarding safety processes.
Those who are more likely to take risks not only pose a danger to themselves, but they can harm other employees and cause significant financial costs through damage to property or compensation claims. Revelian’s Workplace Safety Profile enables you to screen out potentially risky candidates during your recruitment process by identifying how likely they are to behave unsafely or condone unsafe behaviour from others.
Asses your current team and your candidates.
Taking personal responsibility for safety outcomes
The assessment helps you to identify people with high levels of safety control: those who believe they can influence whether an accident or injury occurs by the actions they take. These employees or candidates are more likely to adopt a proactive approach to safety and follow safety rules and procedures.
Reducing risk-taking activity
The Workplace Safety Profile identifies individuals with high and low levels of risk aversion. People with a high level of risk aversion are more cautious and conservative in their approach to work. They are less likely to take risks that lead to accidents and injuries.
Coping with stress
The assessment allows you to differentiate between people with high and low levels of stress management ability: those who are able to cope with stress and are less likely to be fatigued or distracted at work as a result of stress, and people with low levels of stress management who are more likely to suffer from stress at work.
Avoiding using drugs
Information on drug aversion is available in the long-form version of the Workplace Safety Profile. People with poor results on the drug aversion scale have a more open and accepting attitude toward legal and illegal drugs and are more likely to have used drugs in the past.
Controlling outbursts of anger
Attitudes toward violence is available in the long-form version of the Workplace Safety Profile. People with higher scores tend to control the way they respond to different situations more effectively, and are less likely to act in a violent manner.

You’ll receive an individual report for each candidate outlining their overall score, and for the long form of the assessment, a breakdown of their scores across each of the five safety factors. The report also includes information about the kinds of on-the-job behaviour you can expect from them based on their scores.
The position report ranks each candidate in order of their scores on the Workplace Safety Profile, so you can easily see which candidates have more strict attitudes toward safety at work, and are more likely to behave in a safe and responsible manner.
The report provides a suggested positioning statement and recommended interview questions to help guide a discussion with the candidate regarding their attitudes toward safety, and investigate any areas of potential concern.
Responses are automatically checked for consistency—ensuring the candidate’s responses make sense and are not haphazard or random—and positive self-presentation, ensuring individuals haven’t tried to present themselves in an overly positive way. In this way, we can detect whether the candidate has attempted to ‘beat’ the test.
We work in a high-risk industry and we need to know what people’s attitudes toward safety are. This is a great tool to assist us with measuring that.
The Workplace Safety Profile is already a staple for many top employers. Simply complete the form and one of our friendly staff will be in touch to discuss how you can add our user-friendly test to your recruitment process.
