Question Description

1) Describe how your organization or an organization you are familiar with manages occupational safety and health. To what extent are executives and facility managers committed to the OSH effort, and to what extent are front-line employees involved? What level of effort is exerted to ensure that hazards are evaluated and controlled? Are there continuous improvement efforts in place? 200 wds

2) We have said that managers, supervisors, and employees all have individual responsibilities for safety and need to be held accountable. What, then, do you see as the role of safety professionals? How should they be held accountable? What has been your observation or experience in this regard as a safety professional or while dealing with safety professionals? 200 wds

4) What has been your experience with hazard controls? Does your organization use a decision hierarchy, or does it go right to Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) or training after identifying a hazard? How could your organization improve in this area? If you have no experience with hazard controls, provide an example of a hazard where you imagine starting at the bottom of the hierarchy would be the easiest path for management to take. How can we overcome this tendency? 200 wds

5) f you are a safety professional, reflect on ways in which you participate in design reviews at your organization or how you wish you could participate. If you are not yet a safety professional, find out if your current organization has safety design reviews or find examples of recent project designs or purchases that you feel would have been made safer through a safety design review process. 200 wds

6) Think about any experiences you had with process improvement methodologies such as lean, Six Sigma, total quality management, or others. What was the focus of the improvement?

as the implementation of safety measures to help ensure safety at the workplace. To ensure hazards
are evaluated and controlled, a competent team is outsourced to work alongside frontline
employees in routine evaluation of the workplace in order to identify hazards and put measures to

practices as regards mitigation of identified hazards. Routine evaluations and inspections are
continuous improvement efforts that provide an opportunity for employees and executives to
assess their safety policies on a regular basis and make recommendations for improvement.
