The RWSA-LF assesses an employee's attitudes towards a number of factors relevant to safety at work.
Based on these factors, the RWSA-LF provides a reliable indication of the likelihood that a candidate will be
involved in accidents or cause injury to themselves or others while at work. The specific factors measured by
the RWSA-LF are described below.

Factor Description

SAFETY CONTROL The Safety Control Scale measures the degree to which an individual takes
personal responsibility for their own safety at work.
RISK AVERSION The Risk Aversion Scale provides an indication of the degree to which an individual
will avoid potentially hazardous and risky behaviour.
STRESS The Stress Management Scale assesses the extent to which an individual
MANAGEMENT manages emotional responses and tolerates various degrees of stress while at
DRUG AVERSION The Drug Aversion Scale assesses an individual's attitudes towards drug use and
the likelihood that their work performance will be unaffected by drug use.
ATTITUDES The Attitudes Towards Violence Scale measures the extent to which an individual is
TOWARDS likely to avoid violent behaviour within the workplace.

Previous research has demonstrated a relationship between attitudes towards safety issues and workplace
injuries and accidents. Individuals with a strong sense of safety control, a high tolerance for stress and a
tendency to avoid perceived risks, including those associated with drug use and violence, are less likely to be
involved in accidents and more likely to have an awareness of safety-related issues in the workplace.
Selecting candidates who score favourably will assist in reducing the costs of unsafe work behaviour, such as
injuries, absenteeism, compensation claims and property damage.
The RWSA-LF also assesses aspects of candidates' response patterns to ensure the accuracy of the
resulting work safety score and its appropriate interpretation. The extent to which David understood the
questions that were asked of him and how carefully he completed the measure are indicated by his score on
the Consistency scale. The extent to which David presented himself in an overly positive fashion is assessed
by the Positive Self Presentation scale. A response style that is too positive can indicate that undesirable
attitudes or tendencies relevant to the assessment have been suppressed by the candidate.


David's responses on the Consistency and Positive Self Presentation scales indicate that he understood
what was being asked of him and answered in an open and candid manner. As a result, confidence can be
placed in the accurate and appropriate interpretation of his resulting work safety scores.

Consistency Valid

Positive Self Presentation Valid

After David completed the RWSA-LF, his work safety scores were calculated from the various responses he
provided to the assessment questions. A single score was derived from these responses and reflects his
overall rating on this assessment. Scale scores were also calculated for each of the five aspects of safety
behaviour assessed by this measure. These scores were then compared with scores from selected groups of
people. The groups selected for comparison were the most appropriate to the position of those available.
The groups used for comparison were:
A sample of those engaging in similar work - in this case, people in the Logistics industry
This industry comparison provides information about the candidate's level of safety awareness by comparing
it those of a group of individuals from a relevant industry.
A sample of Employed Adults
This comparison provides insight into the candidate's level of safety awareness by contrasting it with those of
people employed in a broad cross-section of positions.
David's score is described in terms of the percentage of the comparison group that it exceeds. This
percentage score is then given a classification from Far Below Average to Far Above Average. As is shown
below, these classifications represent different parts of the normal curve that is produced when the scores of
large groups of people are plotted.

Level of Overall Safety Awareness Comparison Score

Logistics Industry Employed Adults

Average Average
Overall Work Safety Score (62%) (61%)

As a result of completing the RWSA-LF, David's overall level of safety awareness has been assessed and is
able to be examined. This global score is derived from David's scores across the five scales measured by this
assessment, namely the Safety Control, Risk Aversion, Stress Management, Drug Aversion and Attitudes
Towards Violence scales. As displayed in Table 2 above, David achieved an Overall Safety Awareness score
that exceeded 62% of other scores within the Logistics group. This placed him within the Average range.
In addition to the Logistics group, David's score was also compared against the Employed Adults group. As
displayed in Table 2 above, David achieved an Overall Work Safety score that exceeded 61% of other scores
within the Employed Adults group. This placed him within the Average range.
As discussed previously, strong research evidence has demonstrated the link between individual work safety
attitudes and subsequent safety awareness in the workplace. David's overall score on this assessment, when
compared to the attitudes of other workers in the Logistics group, highlights an average risk of unsafe
behaviour in the workplace.

Violence (52%) (48%)

As a result of completing the RWSA-LF, David's separate scale scores for Safety Control, Risk Aversion,
Stress Management, Drug Aversion and Attitudes Towards Violence have also been assessed and are able
to be examined. As displayed in Table 3 above, David achieved a Safety Control score that exceeded 6% of
other scores when compared against the Logistics group. This placed him within the Far Below Average
range. David's score for Risk Aversion exceeded 94% of other scores in this group, placing him within the Far
Above Average range for this scale. David achieved a score on the Stress Management scale which
exceeded 71% of scores within the Logistics group and placed him within the Average range. David's score
on the Drug Aversion Scale exceeded 99% of other scores in this group, attracting a classification of Far
Above Average, while his score on the Attitudes Towards Violence scale exceeded 52% of other scores,
placing him within the Average range.


Should David's application for the position of McAleese Roadtrain Driver be considered further, it is advisable
that these results be used as a means to promote discussion with him prior to making a selection decision.
For example, where a safety score is low, such discussions have the potential to reveal additional induction
content, supervision or safety-related training requirements for that candidate.
With regard to these discussions, David's responses suggest that some specific topics may need to be
investigated. A suggested positioning statement and recommended interview questions are provided below to
help guide this discussion.
Interview Question Positioning Statement

As part of the recruitment process you completed the Revelian Work Safety Assessment. This
assessment asked you to indicate your attitudes and opinions toward a variety of safety-related
statements and situations. The following questions are derived from your responses to this assessment.

Scale Recommended Interview Questions

SAFETY CONTROL What are some of the things you have done in the past to ensure your own
safety at work?

Besides being careless, what else do you believe contributes to accidents in
the workplace?

ATTITUDES How do you think people should react if they are personally insulted?

Important Considerations
A measure of safety attitudes can provide a useful indication of the extent to which an employee will approach
their tasks in a safe and responsible manner. However, other factors will also contribute to an employees'
propensity for safe behaviour and susceptibility to workplace accidents. An unsafe work environment (e.g. faulty
machinery) and unsafe behaviour by fellow employees (eg. misuse of machinery) are two such factors that may
also contribute. The working environment of the position of McAleese Roadtrain Driver therefore must be
considered in addition to David's assessment results.
