BOS 3125 Unit VIII Course Project-University Case Study

BOS 3125 Unit VIII Course Project-University Case StudyCongratulations! 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
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:
? The biology department has animal dissection, human dissection, a
microbiology lab, and a medical laboratory education program that uses
small quantities of a lot of chemicals. ? The chemistry department has
chemicals that have never been inventoried and a new forensics program
(as in CSI, not in college debate).
BOS 3125, Hazardous Materials Management 4
? The physics department has high-voltage equipment, lasers, and LEDs. ?
The English department has lots and lots of books and papers, as well
as photocopiers. ? The math department has lots of computers and
whiteboards. ? The automotive technology department has everything
pertaining to auto repair, including solvents, asbestos brake linings,
pneumatic tools, waste oil, and cutting and grinding tools. ? The
Massive Arena is one of the original buildings on campus and has a
variety of interesting problems, including asbestos insulation, and the
building is undergoing a massive renovation.
Respond to each of the following questions:
1. Where do you start? 2. Where should you focus your initial HazCom
efforts? In what order do you tackle the rest of the departments? 3.
What are the HazCom issues in the automotive technology department? 4.
What are the hazardous waste issues in the automotive technology
department? 5. What are the HazCom issues in the chemistry department?
6. What are the hazardous waste issues in the chemistry department? 7.
With the Massive Arena renovation, who are the people to whom you need
to communicate hazards? 8. What are your main concerns with the physics
department? 9. What are the hazardous material/waste spill response
issues for the university, and how should you prepare for them? 10. Is
any HazCom training needed for the English and math departments? 11.
What are some resources for finding out how to solve the HazCom issues?
12. You must choose technology or trainers to do the needed training.
What are some issues to consider when selecting these? 13. Due to budget
cuts, you have to do the training yourself, and you will use
PowerPoint. What are some considerations when developing your PowerPoint
Presentation? 14. How can you evaluate your training to ensure that it
is accomplishing your goals? 15. One of the chemistry professors working
with some of the automotive technology faculty members, invents a new
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? 16. The University
decides to partner with the chemistry professor and market this new
compound. Due to the lack of flammability, it is a great hit nationwide.
They then decide to market it worldwide. What concerns need to be
addressed? 17. It turns out that this wonderful new compound makes a
really great explosion when used in conjunction with 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? 18. The biology department has been busy as well.
The little microbiology lab is large now, and they are working with
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
