Chapter 8 comes from an OSHA publication on job hazard analysis.


MOS 5201 uses a custom textbook including only information used in this course, resulting in a more cost-effective textbook than typically available otherwise.




A proposed engineering control is expected to cut the accident rate by 60 percent for a given process. Auditors have estimated cost data for accidents with this process as follows (average cost per accident):

Direct Cost           Hidden Cost               Freq/Yr


First aid cases                        200                     4000                       9
Med. treatment cases           6000                     9000                       3.5
Lost time cases                     8000                   40000                       1.5
No-injury cases                     none                     4000                      11.0

a. Calculate the total benefit expected for this proposed engineering control  (Must show your calculations).

b. If the proposed engineering control will cost $150,000, does the cost-benefit analysis support funding it? Why or why not?

c. What other factors might support funding the project?

Your response should be of a sufficient  length to answer the questions listed. You are required to use at least your textbook as source material for your response. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations.
