ANOVAs one-way test to define variable properties job position, training quality, and training needs correlated by political leadership interventions factor (F).
Results: Chemical risks scores for head of office (median [Mdn]=2.13) were higher to all other job position, χ2= 10.991, p<0.05. Biological risks for head of office (Mdn=3.08) were higher compared to all other categories, χ2=20.770, p<0.01. Psychosocial risks scores for employees (Mdn=3.08) were higher compared to all other categories, χ2=11.349, p<0.05. Organizational risks scores for employees (Mdn=2.84) and head of office (Mdn=2.78) were higher compared to all other categories, and the Kruskal-Wallis test indicated that this difference was statistically significant, χ2(4)=18.278, p<0.01. Perceived training quality 43.78% of participants rate as low (β=0.195, p=0.002), and 65.41% high training needs.
