Rushworth was born in Horsforth, Leeds, in 1930 and completed his school education at Leeds Boys Modern School in 1948.

Following a series of industrial jobs (including as a works chemist, oak bark tannery manager and works manager in a wooden mill), he became an HM Inspector of Factories in Leeds, Wrexham, Cardiff and Glasgow. After twenty years, he left the inspectorate to set up as a consultant (Industrial Health and Safety Services Ltd, Bearsden and Comrie), 1979-1993. During that time he acted also as director of the Cancer Prevention Society, a Glasgow-based charity and volunteer centre, for ten years until 1989.
