Abstract


  • This report summarises the last two of five research projects that led to the development of a pre-employment screening test for firefighters. The aim of this research was to facilitate the identification of capable and robust recruits for Fire & Rescue New South Wales (FRNSW), such that it could sustain the capability of its workforce, whilst simultaneously minimising the risk of injury to both firefighters and members of the community.
