Assess Safety & Risk-taking Behaviors to Develop your Safety Leaders

As a part of our 7-minute online Safety Quotient (SQ) assessment, safety leaders can learn how their own personalities impact their safety as well as how they lead others. Our SQ-L Report offers personalized self-coaching tips on their strengths and blindspots as safety leaders – and how this self-awareness can help better manage their teams.

Years of research into workplace safety have uncovered 6 personality traits that are directly correlated to safety leadership:

  • Resistant
  • Anxious
  • Impatient
  • Distractible
  • Impulsive
  • Thrill-Seeking

Foremen who scored highly Impatient had an average CREW incident rate 4X higher than those Foremen who scored highly Patient (even-tempered) – TC Research
