Write a review of the article that includes the following information:
- Summary of the main points of the article
- How the article complements or contradicts the concepts presented in Chapter 4 of the course textbook.
- A description of any flaws you found in the author’s reasoning or procedures
- Whether you agree/disagree with the author’s conclusions and why
The article review must be three to four pages in length, not counting cover page and references. Follow APA style for the paper format as well as for all references and in-text citations.

Unit III Assignment
Safety Policy Statement
Compose a safety policy statement for your current organization (or an organization for which you previously worked), following the guidelines in the course textbook. Be certain it is specific to the organization, and not just a series of generic statements.
On a new page at the end of your policy statement, briefly propose how the statement should be distributed to the organization. You may also add additional comments or explanations as needed. If you use any sources other than your own experience, you must include a reference list and in-text citations.
You may choose any format for the layout of your policy statement. For this assignment, APA formatting is required only for references and citations. A title page is not required. Be sure to include your last name in the name of the uploaded file, e.g., lastname_safety policy.doc
Unit IV Assignment
Hazard Analysis and Risk Assessment Project
Select a serious workplace hazard with which you are familiar, or use Steps 1 and 2 of the Hazard Analysis and Risk Assessment Guide on page 114 of the course textbook to help you select one. Use Steps 3-10 of the guide to evaluate the hazard and its associated risks, and then click here to access the Unit IV Hazard Analysis/Risk Analysis Project Form.
Please note that you will have to save a copy in order to fill out the form using the “Add Text” tool.
To complete the Initial Risk Assessment and Post Control Risk Assessment sections, use the following codes based on the Risk Assessment Matrix in Table 11 of the textbook:
- – Catastrophic
- – Critical
- – Marginal
- – Negligible
PROBABILITY (Likelihood of Occurrence):
- – Frequent
- – Probable
- – Occasional
- – Remote
- – Improbable
H – High
S – Serious
M – Medium
L – Low
All sections of the form must be completed. Note that the Post Control Risk Assessment Measures section reflects the risk assessment AFTER applying the Additional Control Measures.In a paragraph of at least 500 words, explain the reasoning behind how you filled out each section of the form. Insert the completed form into the same Word document with your paragraph, using APA formatting for the paper format as well as for all references and in-text citations.
Unit V Assignment
Hazardous Noise Case Study
You have been hired as a consultant to help a local machine shop solve a hazardous noise problem. The shop is 10,000 square feet in area, with 12-foot high concrete block walls, and a flat metal roof. Inside the shop are two band saws, two metal lathes, three drill presses, one milling machine, and three abrasive grinders. The six employees work at benches located throughout the shop, using a variety of pneumatic-powered hand tools and non-powered tools. A recent noise survey found sound pressure levels exceeding 100dBA in some parts of the shop. All employees were monitored for noise exposure over an eight-hour workday, and the calculated TWA for noise for the employees ranged from 88dBA to 97dBA.
Using the Risk Assessment Matrix in Table 11 on page 122 of the course textbook, conduct an initial hazard analysis and risk assessment based on the information in the scenario provided. Discuss how you arrived at the risk level estimate.
Determine a possible control measure for each of the six levels in the hierarchy of controls on page 208 in the course textbook, and explain the reasoning behind each choice. For each of the selected control measures, reevaluate the original risk. In a summary paragraph, discuss the results and how the shop managers could determine which control measures would be required and which others might be beneficial to their operations.
Your paper must be a minimum of two pages in length, not counting cover page and references, and follow APA formatting for the paper, as well as for all references and in-text citations.
Unit VII Assignment
Case Study: Heat Exchanger Rupture Incident
Click here to access the Chemical Safety Board’s (CSB) Case Study on the 2008 Goodyear Heat Exchanger Rupture incident.
- Using the information in the CSB Case Study, identify probable direct causes, contributing causes, and root causes of the incident. Explain the reasoning you used to reach these causes. You may make assumptions concerning any missing investigative information as long as you clearly state your assumptions. Discuss how and where your proposed causal factors fit into the causation model on page 356 of the course textbook. For the root causes only, provide recommended corrective actions.
- Create an Events and Causal Factors chart that follows the timeline of the incident. Be sure to include all causal factors you identified in your discussion, as well as any other conditions and events that are relevant to understanding the accident sequence.
The chart can be created using MS-Word, PowerPoint, or Excel, or it can be hand drawn and scanned.
Completed case study must be a minimum of three pages and maximum of five pages, not including the title page, reference page, and chart. Use APA formatting for all of your assignment, as well as for all references and in-text citations.
- Conduct an audit of the following safety management system elements at your organization, or at an organization with which you are familiar and for which you have access to the required information:

Some suggested sources for the objective evidence to support your evaluation:
Documents: organizational safety manuals and
instructions, Safe Operating Procedures, and Job Hazard Analyses;
- Records:emails or letters from management to employees, safety meeting minutes, mishap logs, audit reports, OSHA citations, inspection reports, risk assessments, and training records;
- Interviews:management personnel, supervisors, and employees; and
- Observation:walk through some workplaces to observe conditions for yourself.
- For each management system element, discuss the objective evidence you found (or were unable to find). Evaluate the effectiveness of the organization’s implementation of each element against available reference sources and best practice information. Use the following five-tier evaluation scheme to rate each element:
World Class:OHS Performance
- Strong: Conforming/complete, may have minor gaps with action plans
- Moderate: Scattered non-conformances need to be addressed, positive trends/major elements in place
Significant Non-Conformances Exist: still needs focus
Major Effort Required:major or systemic non-conformances exist
Appropriate references include the course textbook, textbooks from other college-level courses, ANSI/AIHA Z10-2005, other published consensus standards (ANSI, ASSE, AIHA, ISO, NFPA, etc.), OSHA standards and voluntary guidelines, and articles published in professional journals. Blogs, Wikipedia, About.com, Ask.com, and other unmonitored Internet resources are not considered scholarly references and should not be used. Please contact your professor if you have any questions about the appropriateness of a reference source.
- If an element is found to be less than World Class, provide recommendations for improvement. Be sure to use appropriate scholarly reference sources to support your recommendations.
- Conclude the audit report with a summary of the overall status of the organization’s safety management system.
The Course Project must be a minimum of seven pages, and a maximum of 10 pages, not including the title, abstract, and reference pages. A minimum of five professional references/sources must be used. Follow APA formatting for the paper, as well as for all references and in-text citations.
