Research on questionnaires to measure variables related to work experience is abundant. However, these questionnaires are mainly used for scientific validation purposes. In this paper, we aim to create a human risk questionnaire, although grounded on the scientific literature, containing solely a limited number of questions to measure on a regular basis a single human risk score within an organization. We present recent results based on different statistical tests (e.g. ANOVA, CHI-SQUARE and linear regression) of a quantitative survey aimed at finding out which dimensions work best for assessing Job Satisfaction and Pride. Findings are in line with the scientific literature and show first that Job Satisfaction and Pride are both strongly linked to Hierarchical Position. Second, Job Satisfaction is essentially linked to recognition and meaning at work, management attention to employee well-being. Third, Job Pride is essentially linked to the meaning employees find in work activities.
