1. Think about the concept of acceptable risk. Provide your thoughts on acceptable risk as it applies to the workplace or even your everyday life. What are the ethical ramifications of applying the concept to real-life situations for you? 


Your journal entry must be at least 200 words. 


2. Discuss what you would consider as the one most significant roadblock companies are likely to face in implementing the ANSI/AIHA Z10 standards in a typical manufacturing organization. What steps might the company consider to overcome this roadblock? 


Your response must be at least 75 words in length.


3. Since risk cannot be reduced to zero, the as low as reasonably practicable (ALARP) concept is often applied. How can this concept be used to determine acceptable levels of risk? What might be some pitfalls to applying this concept?


Your response must be at least 75 words in length.


4. Management Leadership and Employee Participation has been said to be the most important section of ANSI/AIHA Z10. Why do you think this is the case? Support your discussion with examples from personal experience.


Your response must be at least 200 words in length.


5. Apply the concept of acceptable risk to a hazard prevalent at a place where you work or have worked. If you prefer, you could discuss a job with inherent hazards (e.g. fire fighter, steel erection connector, etc.). Make sure you address the concepts of zero, minimum, and acceptable risk in your discussion.


Your response must be at least 200 words in length.
