Some suggested sources for the objective evidence to support your evaluation:
 
 
 
Documents: 
organizational safety manuals and instructions, Safe Operating Procedures, and Job
 
 
 
Hazard Analyses;
 
 
 
Records: 
emails or letters from management to employees, safety meeting minutes, mishap logs, audit
 
 
 
reports, OSHA citations, inspection reports, risk assessments, and training records;
 
 
 
Interviews: 
management personnel, supervisors, and employees; and
 
 
Observation: 
walk through some workplaces to observe conditions for yourself.
 
 
 
2. For each management system element, discuss the objective evidence you found (or were unable to find).
 
 
Evaluate the effectiveness of the organization’s implementation of each element against available reference
 
 
sources and best practice information. Use the following five-tier evaluation scheme to rate each element:
 
 
 
World Class: 
OHS Performance
 
 
Strong
: Conforming/complete, may have minor gaps with action plans
 
 
Moderate
: Scattered non-conformances need to be addressed, positive trends/major elements in place
 
 
Significant Non-Conformances Exist: 
still needs focus
 
 
Major Effort Required: 
major or systemic non-conformances exist
 
 
 
Appropriate references include the course textbook, textbooks from other college-level courses, ANSI/AIHA Z10-2005,
 
other published consensus standards (ANSI, ASSE, AIHA, ISO, NFPA, etc.), OSHA standards and voluntary guidelines,
 
and articles published in professional journals. Blogs, Wikipedia, About.com, Ask.com, and other unmonitored Internet
 
resources are not considered scholarly references and should not be used. Please contact your professor if you have any
 
questions about the appropriateness of a reference source.
 
3. If an element is found to be less than World Class, provide recommendations for improvement. Be sure to use
 
appropriate scholarly reference sources to support your recommendations.
 
 
4. 
Conclude the audit report with a summary of the overall status of the organization’s safety management system.
 
 
 
The Course Project must be a minimum of seven pages, and a maximum of 10 pages, not including the title, abstract, and
 
reference pages. A minimum of five professional references/sources must be used. Follow APA formatting for the paper,
 

 

as well as for all references and in-text citations.
