NSW Fire Service Work Safety Test

Have you had trouble with the NSW Fire Service Work Safety Test ? Over the past 12 – 18 months I have noticed a rise in people having trouble passing this test which is a great shame.

I have been working with a few people recently who have come across this exact issue and it has cost them a minimum of an extra 12 months waiting to apply again. So it is certainly something worth getting right the first time.

The good news is that in working with these guys it has enabled me to figure out where they were going wrong and develop a process to ensure success at this stage. As the test reflects it is a “Work Safety Assessment” therefore it’s purpose is to attempt to find out how you approach “workplace safety” and how that fits their ideal profile of a firefighter, this is expressed as a sector within a bell curve for which a percentage is deemed suitable.

The assessment asks a number of questions regarding your beliefs and attitudes regarding various work-related safety issues. The test takes around 20 minutes or so and consists of around 80 questions on topics such as accidents, risks and stress.

The format for answering is Strongly Disagree, Disagree, Unsure, Agree, Strongly Agree.

Tip One –  when taking this test without going into too much detail is to be decisive and consistent when answering the questions

Tip Two – when taking this test keep it in mind the role you are applying to and the importance of safety within this role and the emphasis the organisation places on safety.

The tips above should get you off to a really good start if you are struggling at all or just want to ensure you don’t spend 12 months on the sidelines.

If you are really serious about it I can work with you to ensure success at this stage, this requires us to implement a process I have developed to ensure the best chance of success available.

Whether you are applying to the NSW Fire Brigade for the first time OR you have applied before unsuccessfully and are planning on having another crack at it make sure you do not discount this component of the process as many intelligent people have come undone on this one.

I hope you got something out of this article on NSW Fire Service Work Safety Test even if its just an awareness.
