Unit 3 Journal Entry
Have you ever worked in a facility where an injury or illness was caused by an employee’s error? If so, discuss what you believe happened to cause the error and what changes could have been made to prevent the accident.
If you have never worked in a facility where an injury or illness occurred, discuss the example from the unit lesson of the employee missing his fingertips because he bypassed the press curtain. As a safety professional, what changes do you believe could have been made to prevent the accident?
Your journal entry must be at least 200 words in length. No references or citations are necessary.
Unit 3 Case Study
For this assignment, you will create a case study involving an accident in the workplace. Choose an occupational accident that occurred in a facility where you worked, or find an article in the CSU Online Library describing an occupational accident. In your case study introduction, give a brief description of the facility and the incident.
Describe the steps you would take to investigate the accident. Your list of steps should start as if you arrived at the scene of the accident within 30 minutes of the accident. Make sure you cover the steps you would take investigating the accident from your initial arrival on the scene until you arrive at a conclusion as to the cause of the accident.
Based on your knowledge of the accident (or the materials presented in the article), opine as to which of the theories of accident causation discussed in Chapter 3 you believe apply to the cause of the accident you chose. You may use multiple theories of causation if you believe more than one applies.
Your case study should be a minimum of two pages in length, not counting the title and reference pages. You are required to use at least two outside sources, one of which must come from the CSU Online Library. Click here for a library resource to help you find sources. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying APA citations.
