Assignment: Evaluate the effectiveness of a company’s accident prevention
Why is it important for not only employees to be accountable within a safety program but also employers? How does a continuous alignment of accountability foster communications between a company and its employees within a safety culture?
Compare the differences between a prospective study and a retrospective study. How does each evaluate the effectiveness of a company’s accident prevention efforts?
Explain how safety programs can be used as incentives by companies to help reduce on-the-job accidents. List at least five important factors that help companies find the right balance between safety and providing rewards for safe actions while operating within a fleet.
Review the steps in developing a fleet safety award program. In reviewing each of these recommended steps, identify at least three program parameters that you feel would be most effective in communicating safety to employees and would also result in increased on-the-job safety practices.
How are these effective, and what do you think can result from the use of these parameters?
The response should include a reference list. Double-space, using Times New Roman 12 pnt font, one-inch margins, and APA style of writing and citations.

A conclusion, which:
- restates your thesis statement/line of argument/central contention; and
- summarises the points and evidence you provided to support your thesis.
