Situational Safety Assessment (SSA)

The Situational Safety Assessment (SSA) is designed to assess an individual’s safety risk and their capacity to operate safely within the workplace. By evaluating their safety competency, behavioural tendencies, perspectives, and mental state, the assessment provides valuable insights into the candidate’s ability to perform their duties safely and effectively.

By integrating this practical, Human Factors-based assessment into the organisation’s safety management system at the recruitment or needs analysis level, employers can help individuals avoid placing themselves in harm’s way, while also managing the variable and demanding behavioural dimensions of safety for their workforces.

The SSA assessment is a fast and accurate means of assessing candidates for their vulnerability and propensity to safety hazardous behaviour. With its high-test reliability and predictability, along with its low-cost online delivery, the test provides instant reports that can help augment the organisation’s safety defenses, in addition to and beyond systems and engineering remedies for the workplace.

SSA Data

By utilising our Situational Safety Assessment (SSA) and other assessments, employers can gain valuable insights into candidates’ safety strengths and weaknesses, allowing them to identify potential safety risks in the workplace. Investing in your employees’ safety and well-being is essential in creating a Health and Safe Environment (HSE), and can promote productivity, reduce absenteeism, improve retention rates, and boost employee morale.

The SSA report provides full insight into your candidates’ safety capability and quantifies the level of safety competency. The report provides a full profile of candidates and is broken down into 3 areas:

  • Attention & Recovery
  • Functional Abilities
  • Safety Perspective

Safe Hiring

When recruiting safe employees, it’s important that your recruitment process is optimised to find the right candidates that don’t fall into the category of a risky employee.

We have broke this down into a 5 stage cycle that starts with you attracting the right candidates, screening them for the relevant experience, cognitive ability, safety awareness, qualifications etc. then understand how these methods relate to on the job performance. This data can be reused for continuous improvement to ensure you hire safe workers consistently. We call this utilising your data.

From here you can tie in your psychometric data into your safety reports by comparing your near misses and incidents before and after you implemented the SSA.
