1. Choose three organizations that you believe have had the greatest impact on the current state of safety and health programs in the United States. Summarize the purpose of each organization, and discuss how you believe you can use these organizations to improve your ability to perform your duties as a safety and health professional.
2. Discuss the organizational system that you believe would be the most effective for the safety officer in a medium-sized (100-200 employees) manufacturing facility. Explain how you would balance the company’s requirements for production and your job of providing a safe work environment.
3). The Acme Company lost 650 hours due to accidents on the job in the first quarter of the year. The average hourly wage of the employees who contributed to the lost hours was $15.00. The company benefits add 25% to the wages. Using the cost-of-lost-hours formula (employee hours lost X average loaded labor rate = cost), calculate the direct cost of the lost work hours. Discuss the approach you would use to estimate the hidden costs that would also be associated with the lost hours.
4).Explain the benefits that may result from obtaining a safety and health certification. Discuss which certification you believe would be the most beneficial to your present job or a job you would like to have in the future. What do you believe would be the biggest hurdle to you obtaining the certification?
5)In 2017, the Acme Company had 30 individuals with recordable injuries, four individuals with a recordable illness from an occupational exposure, but no fatalities. The company had 400 employees who worked 40-hour weeks with 2 weeks off during the year. Calculate the total injury and illness rate (IR) for the company in 2017 using the following formula: IR = N X 200,000 ÷ T (N = number of injuries illnesses, and fatalities; T = total hours worked by all employees during the period in question). Discuss how the calculated IR might be used by OSHA in determining programmed inspection schedules and how the company might use the IR to improve safety at the facility.
6)Explain your thoughts on OSHA’s use of incorporation by reference and whether you believe it improves safety and health in the workplace. Discuss how you believe standards that are incorporated by reference can be used to improve safety and health at a workplace you know about.
7)Discuss the predicament that a safety professional faces knowing that some OSHA regulations are outdated and may not provide adequate protection for workers. Recommend an approach that you believe would overcome the issue.
8) Present the pros and cons of an employer participating in the OSHA Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) or the Star Program. Based on the pros and cons, explain why you would or would not recommend participation to an employer where you worked.
