WEEK 1 QUESTIONS
1.Since risk cannot be reduced to zero, the ALARP concept is often applied. What might be some pitfalls to applying this concept? (Response needs to be 75 words long with references).
2.Discuss what you think might be roadblocks to implementing the standard ANSI/AIHA Z10 in a typical manufacturing organization. Which sections might prove to be the most challenging? (Response needs to be 75 words long with references).
3.The stated primary purpose of Z10 is to reduce the risk of occupational injuries, illnesses, and fatalities. As noted in the course text, zero risk is not likely to be achievable, so acceptable risk levels must be defined. What about a goal of zero injuries? Is that achievable? How does “acceptable” risk affect injury reduction goals? Support your discussion with at least two references. (Response needs to be 200 words long with reference).
4.”Management Leadership and Employee Participation” has been said to be the most important section of the ANSI/AIHA Z10 standard. Provide your opinion as to which section might be the second most important. Support your discussion with examples from personal experience. (Response needs to be 200 words long with reference).
