The goal of this study is to present the reliability test of Boix and Vogel's risk assessment scale in work environments for health area in Brazil. For this, 73 nursing professionals from Brazil answered the scale version, and replied the instrument with a range of 15 days. For internal consistency evaluation of dimensions it was used the Cronbach's α; to assess the strength of association between the constructs was used the intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC); and to evaluate the consistency of response in two times interview was used the weighted κ. The ICC showed excellent correlation between dimensions, ranging from 0.87 and 0.96. About internal dimensions consistency, Cronbach's α values varied from 0.64 to 0.85. On the items, the weighted κ varied from 0.66 (95% CI 0.52 to 0.81, and 0.93 (95% CI 0.87 to 0.99). The results of this study indicate that the scale shows high reproducibility for all dimensions evaluated.
