Dependability and Safety Evaluation Tests

Before hiring an employee it is important to evaluate them based on their specific skills and capabilities. Many recruiters and hiring managers are choosing to hire individuals based on the results generated from an employee evaluation test, rather than solely relying on the results of an interview.

There are numerous employee evaluation tests that can be carried out and the specific test or tests that you select will depend upon your needs as a recruiter.

Dependability and safety evaluation tests are pre-employment tests that can quickly and accurately identify the reliability and dependability of a candidate in one of the following industries:

  • Retail
  • Transportation
  • Manufacturing
  • Call centre production

Benefits of the test

Dependability and safety evaluation tests are cheap to perform and easy to conduct, requiring the candidate to answer a few, short psychometric questions. They are the ideal way to establish how effective an employee will be, how focused they will be on making a difference, how good their attendance record will be and whether they will bring a positive attitude to the workplace. They are also a good way to predict if a candidate will be more or less accident prone in safety-critical environments.

Results are quick and easy to generate and give recruiters a clear cut answer as to whether or not the candidate is right for the position.

What exactly do the tests measure?

Specifically, Dependability and Safety Evaluation tests measure the likelihood that a candidate will:

  • Arrive on time
  • Return from breaks on time
  • Take safety seriously
  • Check their work thoroughly
  • Handle stressful situations
  • Keep a moderate temper
  • Be confident in their abilities
  • Be motivated to succeed on the job

The purpose of the test is to identify the best candidates for the role prior to conducting the interview, and can be completed in either a paper format or via the internet within ten minutes.

 

More and more hiring managers are choosing to perform such tests prior to proceeding with the interview stage.
