Congratulations! You have just become the safety manager for Podunk University. Your position is at the campus in Podunk, Colorado, and your predecessor left the job a year and a half ago. There has been nobody in the position during that interval. The commitment of the institution to safety is dubious at best, but you are looking forward to starting your new position and making a positive change.
After introducing yourself to the secretary you share with a half dozen other, more senior, people, you decide to focus on hazardous material and hazardous waste issues since you just completed a great college course on those topics. You tour the campus and discover that the following departments and programs are yours to deal with:
BOS 3125, Hazardous Materials Management 3
brake linings, pneumatic tools, waste oil, and cutting and grinding tools.
asbestos insulation, and the building is undergoing a massive renovation.
Respond to each of the following questions:
considerations when developing your PowerPoint Presentation?
nonflammable compound that will render obsolete the need for solvents to degrease auto parts. She wants to
market the stuff. What needs to be done before it can be marketed, and who should do it?
flammability, it is a great hit nationwide. They then decide to market it worldwide. What concerns need to be
another chemical. As the University is manufacturing the compound in large quantities and storing it on the
grounds, what concerns do you now have? What experts should you consult?
stronger pathogens. How would you determine the new hazard communication requirements and things that you should do beyond that minimum?
After a tough five years, you have the Podunk University campus running smoothly. Everybody is trained, and your successor will not have nearly as much of a challenge as you did. Congratulations, and best wishes on your next challenge!
Your submission must be a minimum of four pages double-spaced, not including the title and reference pages, and in APA format. Support your answers to the questions with appropriate references and in-text citations.
