Safety Control Attitudes Predict Accidents

Three-hundred eighty applicants to a large independent grocery store chain were hired using the company's usual hiring procedures. The Safety Control Scale was not used as a screening device.

Three months after hire, the safety records of these employees were examined. It was found that employees who had no work accidents (N = 318) had significantly higher Safety Control Scale scores than did employees who had work accidents (N = 62; t = 2.9, p < .01).

Thus, the Safety Control Scale appears to predict those employees most at risk for having accidents.
