Predicting the next frontier in workplace safety

Has your safety record stalled? Do you keep investing time and money for diminishing returns? What if you could cut injury rates and build a safety culture – before employees even walk through the door?

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

Workplace safety is no exception. For businesses struggling to move the dial on safety, predictive analytics could just be the breakthrough they need.

There is growing evidence that the decades-old 80/20 rule applies to workplace safety. While the ratio might differ slightly, it suggests the majority 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.

As passionate pioneers in the field of predictive analytics, Effectus has helped develop a groundbreaking tool to drive smart high-volume shortlisting, particularly when it comes to safety.

Called Predikt-r, it uses data science to reliably predict individual safety behaviours, contribution to safety culture, and likelihood of workplace injuries.

We can unlock the DNA of what makes a safe employee in a specific organisation and provide crystal clear insight into the candidates who will prove safest on the job.

It seems simple and it is: just interview people you already know will be safer. And while the method is also fast, precise and cost-effective, it’s all driven by sophisticated algorithms and tailored safety competencies.

And like everything we do, it’s built to measurably boost team and business performance. In fact, our team have helped many clients to predict, manage and improve safety outcomes, achieving results that include:

  • improving organisational lost-time injury frequency rates by 44% within 12 months
  • increasing near-miss reporting by 71%
  • increasing safety culture and workplace hazard reporting by over 600%
  • directly reducing worker’s compensation claim costs by over $5000,000 per annum.
