WHAT IS THE SQ?
Safety Quotient™ is an innovative employee risk assessment technology that measures 6 unique personality traits directly connected to risk tolerance and unsafe behaviors. Most companies using Safety Quotient™ have reduced workplace incidents by more than 25%.
The employee risk assessment outputs a detailed two part report outlining strategies to improve the participants’ Safety Self-Awareness and allows managers to predict preventable incidents through personalized training and coaching.
Through a 10-15 minute online assessment, Safety Quotient™ measures participants’ personality risk factors to predict which of your front-line employees are high-risk for these traits. Years of research into workplace safety have uncovered 6 personality traits that are directly correlated to employee safety:
BENEFITS OF USING THE SQ
Assess candidates to gain insight into the type of employee they may be and receive tailored interview questions designed to have the candidate speak on their Safety Self-Awareness, ensuring they can be trained to overcome their unsafe tendencies.
Once you make your hiring decision, you can provide your new employee with their results in the form of the Participant Report. This report allows them to develop a better understanding of their default personality and how it affects their workplace behavior. The report plan allows managers to provide personalized orientation with coaching and management tips curated to the new hires’ risk-areas.
Developing Current Employees
Having your current employees use the employee safety assessment will provide your supervisors with strategies to manage each of your employees’ unique personalities, ensuring they make safer decisions.
By regularly updating and analyzing your company’s employee safety assessment data, you can begin identifying correlations between incident data and internal Safety Quotient™ data, allowing you to have a full 360 degree view of your Safety Risk Profile and develop more relevant training regimes. The data can be leveraged to build the Safety Self-Awareness of your employees and improve corporate safety programs at all levels.
When using the SQ companies have achieved a 20% reduction in workplace incidents.
HOW YOU CAN USE THE SQ
Employers can use the SQ to help identify workers that are more likely to cause incidents in the workplace. Employing a worker with unsafe tendencies on your team can be very costly. For existing employees, being aware of your worker’s personality risk-areas is important in mitigating the potential risks they can pose to themselves, others on their team, and the organization.
