Chapter 2: Integrated Management Systems: Practical Applications

 The Plan-Do-Check Act

In 500 words, reflect on the type of skills a safety manager would need to be successful in a corporation dedicated to applying a management systems approach. Include the following considerations for each attribute identified: · Identify the attribute (auditing skills, documentation skills, presentation skills, etc). · Identify the Plan-Do-Check Act component and its management system tasks. · Explain the methods to attain excellence in that attribute (education, experience, on-the-job training (OJT), etc.) · Assess your ability to perform those skills. Do you believe you have those skills, or are there areas where you believe you need further development?

 

In 200 words, discuss why Deming’s Plan-Do-Check-Act would be considered a continuous feedback loop for a continuous improvement model. Do you think this organization organizational model is appropriate for framing or describing EHS management systems?

 

In 200 words, considering the definition of integrated management systems, the term "integrated" could refer to integrating a management systems approach into how things are done at a given facility, or it could mean integrating several similar management systems approaches into one way of conducting business to take advantage of efficiencies inherent in economies of scale. Which meaning of the word integrated do you think the authors are presenting? Could they be referring to both? Support your position with a well-reasoned argument.

 

In 200 words, compare and contrast the concepts of corrective actions and preventive actions as they related to the "check" and the "act" part of the cycle. Utilize the concept of leading and trailing metrics in your discussion.

 

In 200 words, contractors are of great concern when it comes to companies who take a beyond compliance approach to ESH. Consider a scenario where there is a large manufacturing plant that makes custom automobile wheels. This plant applies a beyond compliance approach to safety and health and is a STAR VPP site. The facility plans to nearly double its size in square footage by adding onto the existing facility. The plant will continue to operate during construction. What are some things the company can do to assure they bring on quality contractors and what are the key construction hazards to look out for? Also, who takes responsibility for contractor safety when it comes to applying a beyond compliance, management systems approach?
