industries. Several years ago, Gemstone decided it wanted to become an OSHA VPP site. It also wants to send the

application to OSHA in the upcoming year. Further, there is a keen interest to align with the ANSI/AIHA Z10 standard.

In going through the application submission materials, you noticed something that threw up a red flag, however. Although

there was an accountability requirement specified in front-line workers’ performance evaluation documentation for safety

performance, there was no such requirement in the performance evaluation documentation for supervisors, managers, or

executives. Your discussions with employees also suggest that, although the employer wants the front-line workers to be

heavily involved in the safety effort, they are not always sure exactly what they are supposed to be doing to help move the

company’s safety programs forward.

Another issue that concerns you is that the effort to implement a safety and health management systems approach appears

to be somewhat piecemeal. You are finding it difficult to identify a clear Plan-Do-Check-Act approach to continuous

improvement.

Please compose a two-page document for your client to include your evaluation of these deficiencies along with an

explanation of the significance of these problems in relation to the safety and health management systems approach. Your

goal is to help the employer understand why these issues need to be attended to prior to submitting your application. In your

response, be sure to do the following things:

Include an introduction that establishes the issues and provides necessary background information.

Assess the importance of establishing safety accountability measures for managers, employees, and safety

professionals.

Appraise the assignment of safety-related job tasks.

Apply the Plan-Do-Check-Act framework to resolve a safety deficiency.

Your paper must be a minimum of two pages, American Psychological Association format
