Reliability and Validity Information (or Relevant Citation)

WorkSafe7 was designed as a practical interactive survey for engaging and facilitating work groups in a face to face setting. It maps group experience and provides a vocabulary so groups can identify and diagnose health and safety problems in conjunction with work demands, devise practical solutions, then repeat the process over time in a plan-act-learn-improve cycle. The interactive survey method has been in use for consulting purposes since 1996. The WorkSafe7 survey has not been evaluated as a quantitative survey. The method is qualitative and geared to support detailed group inquiry and decision making for specific work contexts. In consulting practice, the survey wording may be varied to fit the language, culture or work context of particular client groups.
