Option 1: Over the past three years your organization has experienced an upward trend in the number of work-related injuries and fatalities. The Board is deeply concerned by this trend and is aware that other organizations have implemented occupational health and safety management systems (OHSMS) to improve their safety performance. As a result, the Board is considering tackling this unacceptable trend by implementing either ANSI Z-10 or OHSAS 18001. The Board has requested that you, in your role as the Corporate Safety Manager, prepare a report for the Board which must discuss:

· The strengths and weaknesses of OHSMS including if there is evidence that implementing an OHSMS will reduce work-related injuries and fatalities.

· The implications of implementing an OHSMS for the Board, managers and supervisors.

· If you think, in your professional opinion, the company should implement an OHSMS, which one (ANSI Z-10 or OHSAS 18001), and why.

Option 2: Critically compare your organization’s current approach to safety management, or an organization you have access to, with the elements of ANSI Z-10 and OHSAS 18001 and identify gaps. Your report must:

· Discus the strengths and weaknesses of OHSMS, including if there is evidence OHSMS reduce injuries and fatalities.

· Critically compare and contrast ANSI Z-10 and OHSAS 18001.

· Critically compare the requirements of ANSI Z-10 and OHSAS 18001 with your organizations current approach to safety management, and identify gaps.

· Make recommendations for improvement based on your gap analysis.
