About Risk Tests
In every line of work, there is some degree of risk. Whether the job is on the floor of a manufacturing plant, behind the wheel of a delivery truck, or standing at the cash register, every job has rules and procedures designed to keep employees safe and productive. Risk tests help organizations reduce risk by identifying the job candidates who are most likely to be conscientious, reliable, and able to follow rules and safety procedures.
Risk tests can assess different qualities. For example, risk tests can measure a person’s integrity and rule adherence. They can also assess a person’s willingness to take risks or engage in unsafe behavior. By applying the psychology behind what causes these counterproductive activities, risk tests help organizations reduce the frequency of safety incidents, workplace injuries, retail shrinkage, fraud, absenteeism, and more.
