What groups of employees/supervisors/others will you want to interview during the investigation, and why?

1. After reviewing chapters 4 -6 please answer the following questions. Please no intro and no conclusion. Each question should be at least 220 words. PLEASE UNDERLINE BOLD EACH QUESTION INSIDE PAPER. I will attach the chapters to this order. Q1, in 100 words answer the following question. ? In 220 words answer q1. Many companies stress the use of formal “root cause analysis” to determine why accidents occur and to help identify interventions that will preclude event reoccurrence. Others feel that the root cause techniques are complex, hard to use, and often find management is the cause of every event. Do you think a company should invest in a formal root cause analysis program, and invest in training of lead auditors in the technique? In 220 words answer q2. 1. As the lead plant safety professional, you are asked to chair an accident analysis committee reviewing the following incident:
A worker changing light bulbs in a high bay work area of a unionized shop fell to his death from the basket of the man-lift crane (example: http://www.alibaba.com/productshowimg/in100677380-100435769-0/man_lift_crane.html) he was using. Three co-workers but no supervisors were present. With the crane extended, the worker had climbed up the side rails of the work platform and fell over. He was not using a safety line. Only a week before, another worker had narrowly escaped injury when he slipped using the same crane but caught himself before he fell.
a. Who would you want as team members on the investigating committee, and why?
b. List several questions that you will want your committee to answer.
c. What groups of employees/supervisors/others will you want to interview during the investigation, and why?
In 220 words answer Q3 A proposed engineering control is expected to cut the accident rate by 40 percent for a given process that was recently cited as being out of compliance by an OSHA inspector. Auditors have estimated cost data for accidents with this process as follows (average cost per accident):

Direct Cost Hidden Cost Freq/Yr

First aid cases 1000 4000 6
Med. treatment cases 6000 9000 1.5
Lost time cases 3000 50000 0.5
No-injury cases none 2000 5.0

a. Calculate the total benefit expected for this proposed engineering control. Show your calculations.

b. If the proposed engineering control will cost $40,000, does the cost-benefit analysis support funding it? Why or why not?

c. What other reasons might support funding the project?
