What does SafetyWorthy measures?

Personality and cognitive factors such as awareness have proven to be the most effective factors in predicting workplace accidents. Many work safety tests have been based on factors which have since been revealed by research to be irrelevant in predicting work accidents, such as safety perceptions and workplace culture. However, Psych Press' SafetyWorthy® test is based on factors shown by research to directly predict workplace accidents.

By utilising personality and cognitive factors as predictors, the Work Safety test is a step forward in the assessment of employees' likelihood of experiencing accidents in the workplace.


SafetyWorthy® has been designed to be used as a general measurement of suitability for employment, with a focus on promoting safe work practices and reducing workplace accidents. It can be implemented as part of a general recruitment process, or used as a tool to inform decisions regarding the necessity of development interventions to improve work safety.

SafetyWorthy® can also be used as part of a training program or workshop, identifying causal issues involved in workplace accidents as part of a preventative approach. Finally the Work Safety test has been is designed to be evidence-based verifiable compliance with legal safety standards.
