Tired of investing time and money without really shifting the dial on your safety record? A solution could be much easier than you think.

Predictive analytics is changing the face of HR, using concrete data to drive recruitment and development while delivering real business returns.

For organisations struggling to make strides on safety, it could just be the breakthrough they need – helping cut injury rates and build a safety culture before employees even walk through the door.

Growing evidence shows the decades-old 80/20 rule applies to workplace safety. While the ratio might differ slightly, it suggests most of a company’s safety incidents (around 80%) are incurred by just a small proportion of the workforce (around 20%) – and, more importantly, by a small number of employees involved in multiple incidents.

So what if you could screen job applicants for this risk, quickly and easily shortlisting candidates who will naturally be safer in the workplace? Now you can.

Predikt-r is the groundbreaking new tool to drive smart high-volume shortlisting, particularly when it comes to safety. Developed by qualified psychologists and experienced business performance specialists, it uses data science to reliably predict individual safety behaviours, contribution to safety culture, and likelihood of workplace injuries.

A simple online questionnaire screens candidates as the first step, before recruiters even look at a CV. Predikt-r’s validated assessments provide crystal clear insight into the candidates who will prove safest on the job.

Then recruiters can spend their time interviewing people they already know will be safer. The platform is fast, precise and cost-effective, and driven by sophisticated algorithms and tailored safety competencies.

Working with a national client in aged care, social justice and disability services, the Predikt-r team developed candidate screening specifically tailored to criteria that influence the safety performance of frontline care workers. Modeling showed that using Predikt-r to shortlist potential care workers would deliver injury reductions equating to:

  • $172,461 in direct injury savings after just one year
  • 337% return on investment after just one year.

Of course, injury reductions also directly affect insurance premiums – not to mention the significant time and costs saved in the recruitment process.
